    Many thanks, Dr Seow for the quick response.

    Looks like the sightings have become more frequent since last year.

    UnH have obscure spots not fascia.

    Sunny Chir shot a female more than a decade ago.
    It may still be extant.


    TL Seow: Cheers.

    Thanks for the info on Zographetus rama and Isma protoclea. Hopefully with more eyes in the field, we will come across them one of these days.
