    Thanks Dr Seow for your explanations and ids

    Some shots taken in the last few months.

    32a.Highlight of this very disruptive and unforgetable year 2020 must be this Swamp Tiger (Danaus affinis malayanus) found in Pulau Ubin
    (see https://butterflycircle.blogspot.com...-for-2020.html)



    32b


    33. Cepora iudith malaya (The Orange Gull)


    34. The Colonel (Pandita sinope sinope)


    36a.Pointed Ciliate Blue (Anthene lycaenina miya)

    Post 22.

    35a & 35 b.

    35a is correctly C. cormasa.

    35b should be Caltoris bromus.

    If 35 a & 35b are taken by the same camera one after another ,they will have the same colour rendition, yet 35a is typically with the red tone of C. cormasa but 35b is ochreous brown as in C. bromus.
    Further more C. cormasa typically have one lower cellspot (thus Fullstop Swift.)The upper cellspot is absent or very tiny.
    35b show both the cellspots as in typical C. bromus.


    C. cormasa , red tone & upper cellspot tiny or absent.

    My first post here in 2021 - so far, it has been a very quiet year in terms of "butterfly-hunting"
    Please help to confirm ids of the skipper and the Bush Brown.

    36a: Telicota colon stinga


    36b: Telicota colon stinga same specimen as 36a


    37. Ionolyce helicon merguiana


    38. Eurema andersonii andersonii


    39. Mycaelesis visala phamis

    36 is correct as T. colon.
    The arrangement of the FW spots in a stepladder (staggered) is typical.


    38 should be E. hecabe. Correction: Eurema simulatrix ; HW space 7 with a basal black dot.
    The FW have two faint cellspots.
    Also importantly the FW black border, its inner margins in space 2 & 3 is aligned towards the costa.
    The HW postdiscal spot 7 is a blot.

    E. andersonii.
    FW black border with the inner margins in space 2 & 3 aligned towards the apex.
    HW spot 7 is a sinuous long streak.

    39 should be Mycalesis perseoides.

    M. perseoides is very common in Singapore & M. visala much less.
    Intermediates occur between the two.

    M. perseoides.
    HW inner margins of ocelli forming a very irregular 'indentation'.
    HW dark line irregular with rougly three teeth.

    M. visala.
    HW inner margins of ocelli forming a more regular ,less jagged 'indentation'.
    HW dark discal line more regular ,not formibg distinct teeth.

    Post 29, 44.
    Fairly typical male P. mathias where the strong grey tinge of the ground colour gives it a dirty look.


    TL Seow: Cheers.
