    Default ID help needed

    Dear Dr Seow, could you kindly advise the ID for these skippers. The first 2 photos are the same skipper, shot at Sentosa in Dec 2017, the 3rd photo was photographed at Pulau Ubin in Oct 2017. Thanks in advance!

    3 .Baoris oceia male.
    Normally in Baoris the antenna shows very little pale area, so this here can be confusing.
    FW with strongly convex outer margin.
    HW with a pale mark centrally ( this is where the haif-tuft is on the upperside.).
    FW with reduced nos. of spots Note cellspot is visible as a sort of flat triangle.
