    Hello! Could I please get help with these swifts? Is the second one a Malayan Swift? Also, what are the defining characteristics to identify this one?

    Thank you!

    1 is a Pelopidas likely P. mathias.
    The FW has an oblique line running from the biggest spot.
    This is the male brand, best seen on the upperside.
