    Question Sabah - ID Request

    Hi Doctor Seow,

    Had a amazing trip to Borneo, and would like to seek for some ID, the list is quite hefty, so I understand it will take some time, so no rush to reply.
    I refer to the butterflies of borneo volume 2 written by the japanese as a reference

    4. Chersonesia intermedia.

    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/196339574
    5. Chersonesia rahria.

    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/196339619
    6. Chersonesia rahria.

    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/196345960
    7. Chersonesia rahria.


    Species in which the FW 3rd band from the base is single (ie. not with double edgings.)

    Fw submarginal band has wavy margin.

    1a. FW apex crossed by a curved line/band........C. rahria.
    https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-ZRXxVkCHC...0/DSC_0353.JPG

    1b. FW apex not crossed by a line/band.....C. intermedia.

    2. FW submarginal band with straight margin.......C. risa

    9. Uncertain. Too worn.


    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/196345913

    10. Probably Eurema lacteola.

    Two species can be very similar.
    they both have a single FW cellspot. HW spot 7 is a sort of squiggle.

    In E. andersoni the FW border in space 2 & 3 is roughly parallel to the margin.
    https://blogger.googleusercontent.co...erick_01_c.jpg
    https://blogger.googleusercontent.co...EA_Khew_01.jpg

    In E. lacteola, the fW border's inner margin in space 2 &3 is slanted from costa to tornus.
    This alignment is similar to that of E. hecabe.

    11. Female Neptis omeroda.

    Three species may look similar.

    Neptis harita.
    This can be identified by the HW submarginal spots being catenulate,ie. like a chain-link.
    male & female.
    https://blogger.googleusercontent.co...eclosed_02.jpg
    https://www.butterflycircle.com/chec...Bene%20Tay.jpg

    Neptis omeroda.
    This looks similar but the FW postdiscal spots are rounded (not concaved) & the Hw submarginal band is not catenulate.
    https://yutaka.it-n.jp/lim1/720220001.html
    https://thaibutterflies.com/wp-conte...-omeroda-1.jpg


    Neptis ilira have rather dark narrow & obscure markings.

    SYMBRENTH.png

    12, 13 & 14.
    Likely one species.
    Should be Symbrenthia hippoclus.
    The two species S. lilaea & hippoclus are very similar & a recent gene analysis suggest they may form a supercomplex.
    This was based on a couple of gene markers & may be inadequate.
    I follow Eliot in C&P4.

    Symbrenthia hippoclus.
    a Sundanian & Papuan species.
    UnF discal spot 3 which is triangular is largely pinkish. Similar HW discal spots 4, 5, 6 may also be pinkish but hard to see in fieldshots.
    UnH discal spot 7 more heavily shaded brown at the corner.

    https://blogger.googleusercontent.co...I-CjVU6e=s1600
    https://blogger.googleusercontent.co...HKdOIEvW=s1704
    From Papua.
    https://www.flickr.com/photos/angiud/45512555425


    Symbrenthia lilaea.
    UnF discal spot 3 tawny; UnH discal spot 7 margin largely clear; ground less dark-shaded.

    15. Cirrochroa malaya.

    Two species are similar in which UpF have broad black border.

    Cirrochroa emalea.
    UpF apex with a pale spot in the black border.
    UnH silvery band much constricted in the upper half.
    https://www.butterflycircle.com/chec...eoman-KSK2.jpg
    https://www.butterflycircle.com/chec...eoman-khew.jpg

    Cirrochroa malaya.
    UpF apex without a pale spot.
    UnH silvery band only slightly narrower in the upper half.

    16. Female Isma cronus.

    Female Isma is notoriously difficult to ID, but this one is clear enough.

    unH with a minute white spot in the cell & in space 2.
    Underside of abdomen banded.

    See C&P4 page 366 key line 8.



    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/196345879

    17. Male Tanaecia cocytina ambalika.
    Previously as Tanaecia iapis ambalika.
    https://inaturalist.nz/observations/69258956
    https://inaturalist.nz/observations/...ity_assessment


    The nominate subspecies in Java ie. T iapis iapis is very different, being marked in white.
    https://www.jungledragon.com/image/1...apis.html/zoom
    https://www.jungledragon.com/image/9...apis.html/zoom

    Most authors now relegate the forms with blue band in the male as T. cocytina including on the continent.
    The form in Singapore would be T. cocytina puseda.
    it is also placed in the genus Cynitia by some.
    https://yutaka.it-n.jp/lim2/721070010.html



    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/196339632

    18. Male Tirumala septentrionis miosticta.
    The forms from Borneo, including those of I]Ideopsis[/I] have very narrow markings.
    Continental form. Note male dark brand at bases of space 2 & 3.

    19, 20, & 21 all Mycalesis anapita.

    M. pitana.
    This Bornean endemic is IDed thus.
    Upperside with broad black border on both wing; FW ocelli totally obliterated.
    UnF with an eyespot in space 3 ,so no gap between the spots.
    Underside dark discal fascia with a branch marking the cellend, less clear on the FW.

    The other two can be confusing especially on the underside.
    UnF without a spot in space 3, so there is a gap between spot 2, & spots 4 & 5.


    Mycalesis anapita
    UpF with the FW eyespot clear of the black border or at least 3/4 clear.
    UnF with upper third of the brown discal fascia not darker.
    unF with the upper submarginal spot 5 usually much larger than spot 4.
    Ssp. fucienta from Borneo have clearer ocellus.

    https://www.jamiun.com/wp-content/up...rmarksmall.jpg
    https://www.jamiun.com/wp-content/up...rmarksmall.jpg


    Mycalesis patiana.
    UpF with the ocellus in space 2 largely merged into the black border.
    UnF dark discal fascia blackish in the upper third ,often after a kink.
    UnF submarginal spots 4 & 5 sometimes more equal in size.

    22. Euploea camaralzeman scudderi.
    The FW is marked by 3-4 series of small white spots.

    The Bornean subspecies have much reduced spotting on the HW.
    https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-BXTkI8B-o...2BDSC_7582.jpg




    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/19633146823.
    23. Should be Celastrina lavendularis placidina.

    The markings are as for Celastrina.
    Three species are known in Borneo.

    In C. philippina & algernoni, the UnH submarginal line defining the black spots is rounded (crenate).
    In C. lavendularis placidina the line is sharply serrate.
    Also C. lavendularis tend to be darker grey with white-ringed spots.
    See all three below.
