    Default Cameron Highlands

    Surprisingly very low number of butt in highlands. While wifey was busy buying vegetables. I snapped two butts in hurry. One of it I can't find the ID. Hope someone can ID it. Thanks.

    Malayan Jezebel (Delias ninus ninus)

    The 2nd one, looks close to the underside of Orange Tip or some Appias, C&P4 do not show the underside so can only refer to Pisuth, suspect to be Appias pandione ?

    Yes SC, Appias pandione lagela (Banded Puffin). I do not think the forewings are sufficiently falcate to be A. lalassis.

    Les, is that a D. pasithoe? I often encounter D. ninus at Cameron Highlands rather than D. pasithoe.

    Congratulations, SK, right again. The hind wing pattern tells me immediately that is Delias ninus.

    It has been a thoroughbly miserable day today, and I have not been concentrating.
