    6. Arhopala major.
    The markings are as for the amphimuta group.
    There s a weak white spot on the HW tornal cilia but this can occur in both amphimuta & major.
    The V spot in space 1b is J -shaped characteristic of A. major.

    The other three, amphimuta, moolaiana & norda have a well-formed V spot.

    A. major. Note weak white HW tornal spot present.

    7. Koruthaialos rubecula rubecula.

    Ther band is very variable.
    In some case it does not reach the bottom ending at vein 2.
    This is similar to the 2nd male from Ranong.
