    I was surprised by the appearance of the Odina when I was going after the other UFO skipper. But this Odina was a very jumpy one, all the close-up shots were ruined by motion blur as it either jerked or took off at my flash/shutter.

    Any idea of the IDs of the other two? The UFO skipper (pic 2) actually has 5 spots on the hindwing more easily seen when viewed at an obligue angle.

    I'd say that UFO flat is a Tagiades ultra due to its full set of hindwing marginal spots.

    Thanks, Khew for confirming the flat's ID. So I got a +2 outing today.
    As for the second pic skipper, do you think it is a Pelopidas spp. or a Baoris spp. or a Polytremis spp.?

    Not a Baoris I'd say. The other two genera are the most likely possibilities
