    Nice catch on the Rapala.

    I'm guessing the first one is a Pointed Line Blue?

    I think i enjoy digging up old threads!:P The first one is a nacaduba, probably rounded six-line blue. It's too round for a pointed line blue, which is kinda triangular and the ground colour is different from a pea blue, which is off-white(?) with irregular brown markings.

    It is a four-line blue, very likely Nacaduba pavana. The Rapala sp. should be a Suffused Flash. Both species are residents of SBWR.

    I believe over the years, the original poster and the contributors of this old thread have all become aware of the species ID of these two specimens.

    From SBWR, and the colors and marking matches that of the Nacaduba pavana singapura. I think it is .

    Concur with Simon and Horace, the Flash is Rapala suffusa barthema (Suffused Flash)

    Thanks, I will call you next time (probably year end) as that place is simply too big to explore. How do find Ritra in a few hundred ha area ??

    Thanks others for confirming the ID of this old photo.
