    Default Butt heaven - Malaysia

    We have found these butts in the area not more than 2 football fields. Not trying to promote Malaysia, haha.. But it is a lot more than what I can find in a day in KL.

    Thus I called it butt heaven.

    I have filtered out those crows, tigers and many more common butts.

    Is this White dragontail ? Hope I got it correct. Saw about 10 of them puddling near the river bank.

    Wow, LC. You managed to get a large number of the butts I had hoped to show you whilst you were on Samui.

    I think you are right about the Lamproptera curius (White Dragontail). The problem with distinguishing this and the Green Dragontail (Lamproptera meges), is that the pale green of L. meges fades in time until it appears white. The main distinguishing factor is the white scent hairs in L. curius, which are usualy covered by the fold, and therefore not seen in photos of live specimens.

    Your Amblypodia species appears to be a male A. anita anita, from the markings (not a foolproof way to ID). Size and the expanse of blue colouration in the female are the easiest ways to tell A. anita from A. narada. (Still looking for the latter here!)

    You have a couple here that I have not seen before, Prosotas aluta nanda and Libythea myrrha hecura.

    Your photo of the Thauria aliris is simply magnificent, the best I've seen of this very difficult butt to photo.

    Interesting photo of the male Rohana parisatis. You photo shows brown tips to the wings. None of the specimens I've seen have this, the uppersides are entirely black.

    I have thoroughtly enjoyed looking at this series!

    Thanks Les. About the Rahana parisatis, I guess the brown tips could be due to the flash that I used. In fact it looks black.
