Hi, I am leading a small group of Nature lovers from Keppel Club to Alexander Hospital for a Bird and Butterfly walk on 20th Feb ( Monday) starting at 8.15 am. Will appreciate some help to ID the butterflies there if you are free on Monday morning. Thanks. Alan OwYong.

Thanks PT, but I think Simon ID'd the 'Harlequin' as the Lesser Harlequin, and the moth with the red body & blue/black wings I saw with the Tan family as Pompelon marginata (http://rmbr.nus.edu.sg/nis/bulletin2011 ... 19-328.pdf)....

I wasnt given the impression the pretty Pompelon moth you saw there, thought you meant elsewhere, that's 2 moths !

That is a very impressive list !
Our record is 60+ species in 4+hrs at Sime forest many years ago.
