    Default Need your help

    I went to a check on a new area today, as 2 of my original survey sites have been dug up for development! I came across the attached, which, while I think I know what they are, I need confirmation, as if I am right, then it will be a +3 for my list. I will not say what I think they are as it might prejudice your own thoughts. I apologise for the quality of the photos, but they would not let me near, and I don't have a zoom lens at present.

    SC and Les,

    I have doubts of #3 being an Abisara Kausambi

    Basing on the followings.

    1.fore wing discal patch is very diffused.

    2. hind wing is pointed and flared.... a characteristic of the female Plum Judy observed many times in the field and recorded

    My bet is #3 is a Female Abisara saturata kausambioides (Malayan Plum Judy)


    refer here for some comparison : ID an abisara

    Interesting! I have already found A. saturata maya here, and now a second subspecies? How varied is the white apical/subapical patch? In my specimen the dark postdiscal line is uninterrupted. I think I need to find some more specimens!

    Base on the upperside shots that you have (I assumed the 2 photos belong to same specimen), we can tell that this is a female, as the upperside of male A. saturata is dark & the upperside marking of male A. kausambi is not as clear.

    Thanks SC for No2. I had sort of come to that conclusion this afternoon. Disappointing for me, already on my list! I only had a brief glimpse of the underside, and my defective eyesight made me think it was something different. Never mind.

    Sunny, definately female, but my specimen shows certain differences from both contenders.

    #1 looks more like a female malay baron, since the photo has lost much of the details. I prefer such ID should be left unknown
