    Realised that the forewing tip of this orange & white CT is not as pointed as the usual one. Also the third paid of its leg, the balck & white stripe is pretty different too.

    #4c. Hypolycaena erylus teatus, Common Tit (orange & white CT)

    wow, long list & good photos there

    so I think the Tailless Line Blue really feed on the young flower of mimosa, previously I also collected one egg from Punggol but somehow get mixed with a small moth, so end up I got a moth...

    #7 is quite certainly Dingy Bush Brown (Mycalesis perseus cepheus) due to the dislocated eyespot in space 2 of the hindwing.

    CM, good harvest did you also notice there seem to be two type of CF over there, one lighter and the other much darker/brown?

    Thanks SC. The host plant that I encounter for this TLB is not mimosa but something similiar. I will post the photos of the host plant soon.

    Thanks Khew for the confirmation. Really difficult to ID.

    Yes, I notice the difference. After some read ups, I may suggest it is due to the female and male. I realise the female is of darker color with extra markings on the forewings underside while the male is duller in color? Or it is the other way round?

    I also find out than they are very weak in flying and holding on to the leaf. I saw one drop from the upper leaf to the lower leaf while "walking" and they really drunk while feeding. Can staying still for hours!!!

    Bring ladder if possible, I am too short to really shoot them as they always stay on top of the bush while there are ants nest everywhere .
