    Default Ubin (13 Dec) & CCA (14 Dec)

    The weather for the past 2 days was much better than earlier days', and I managed to get more butts sightings in both Ubin and CCA. Here are some of the better shots taken.

    ID assistance for the skipper in pic #3 would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Michael for your ID suggestion.
    When I have the time later, I will try to make more detailed comparisons with the plates for Telicota spp. in the various references I have access to.

    Nice to see the Dwarf Crow back at Ubin. We didn't see it the last time we were there if I remember correctly.

    The Spotted Black Crow has rather large spots. These fellas are quite variable.

    I only encountered one Dwarf Crow that day at the Butterfly Hill for my +1.

    As for the Spotted Black Crow, the variabilty of its spots also cost me some time in comparing the plates figures and checklist photos before I decided on this species ID. Not a +1 for me as I already had the record shot taken at SBWR few months back.

    You should be able to find them along MacRitchie trail along the main jogging route.
