    Default ID of two species, help please

    Shot these two butts in CCA. The first one I think is Virachola kessuma, and the second looks a close match to the shot by Federick in the BC checklist for
    Flos anniella anniella. Please provide assistance in confirming or suggesting an alternative ID.

    I am just guessing. #1 is a Jamides bochus nabonassar while #2 is a Flos anniella anniella?

    Thanks for the ID suggestion for the first one and confirmation for the second.
    I have been observing a colony of Dark Caerulean at WWW for quite a few outings, and my impression/observation of this butt at CCA does not relate to the Dark Caerulean immediately.

    Congrates Horace!

    I Think you have shot the elusive Pitcher Blue Virachola kessuma deliochus .

    The last time it was shot was at TBHP hilltop.

    The markings conforms to what we have in the checklist except the copy you shot is a bit worn.

    Sunny, thanks a thousand times for going to such length to verify the butt ID for me. Getting the confirmation from the only BC member (as far as I can tell from the forum posts) who shot this species is very reassuring indeed.
