    Male Contiguous Swift .Polytremis lubricans
    Ideally try to get an underside shot of the HW as well.

    Contiguous swift. Polytremis lubricans.
    FW spots yellow ;FW two cellspots may join as one.
    HW spots also yellow spots often vague on the underside.
    FW spot 2 large in the male ovoid & overlapping the twoo cellspots & spot 3 (See 2nd pic.)

    Names given to many butterflies are often rubbish, eg Major Yellow Oakblue (which part is yellow?)
    In this case ,the Conjoined Swift never have any spots conjoined while in the Contiguous Swift, the two FW cellspots sometimes merged into one.

    Mis ID.
