    Well, the Arhopala is definitely not a Tailed Disc OakBlue.

    There are at least 5-6 species in that little patch which are very difficult to ID. I have my theories, but 1 person's view in this case does not make the ID 100% certain. If you have C&P4 handy, you'll know what I mean about Arhopalas. In fact, take a look at the photo, then go and find the species that looks like it in C&P4. That is the challenge of this genus, which has something like 80+ species.
