    # 3. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/198633043

    A. pseudomuta group. Correction:alitaeus group
    FW with spot 4 dislocated & shifted outwards from the band.
    HW postdiscal band completely dislocated at vein 2 .beside the "V" spot.
    HW postdiscal spot 7 directly above spot 6.

    A. pseudomuta & alitaeus have more rounded spots.

    A. pseudomuta.
    https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5287...654deea8_b.jpg

    A. alitaeus have very rounded dark-contrasted spots.

    The others have the spots with straighter margins. eg.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arhopa...aMFUpUnAC1.jpg

    # 3. looks to be A. pseudomuta.



    #4. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/198208794
    The underside markings are that of the amphimuta group.
    The completely blue/purple upperside indicate A. amphimuta or moolaiana.
    Since the HW tornus lack a white dot it should be A. amphimuta.



    #5.https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/198208792
    The markings are that of the amphimuta group.Upperside female.
    Probably A. amphimuta.



    #6 .https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/197002540
    The markings are that of the pseudomuta group.
    HW spot 6 is slightly rounded.
    Probably A. pseudomuta itself.

    #7. is Arhopala ariana.

    Pic 4 shows the underside markings are that of the pseudomuta group.Correction: alitaeus group.
    Pic 1 shows the UpF with a dark border increasing at the apex.
    This is as in Arhopala ariana.
    The other males have the FW border a thread.( or broader still in aida.)

    #8 is Arhopala elopura.

    The underside is that of the pseudomuta group.
    Note the spots forming the bands have straight margins.
    The markings are little contrasted ,ie. the bands & the ground colour are of nearly the same tone.
    This is seen in Arhopala elopura.

    The underside is that of pseudomuta group.
    It is rather pale & poorly contrasted.
    Probably another Arhopala elopura.

    Amphimuta group female.

    The distorted "V" spot suggest Arhopala major.

    Arhopala moolaiana.
    Underside of the amphimuta group.
    UnH with a whitish spot at the tornus."V" spot rather fat.
    UpF blue. The stronger black border suggest ssp maya.

    Pseudomuta group. Correction: alitaeus group.

    Probably A. pseudomuta.
    FW margin is more rounded.

    In A. ariana the FW have straighter margin.
