Skipper at Gunung Pulai

Postby plain tiger » Tue Feb 22, 2011 6:48 pm

Hi all,
Would this be Red Demon, Ancistroides armatus armatus, instead of the Koruthaialos sindu (The Bright Red Velvet Bob). Size less than an inch.
Others butts seen were Yellow Glassy Tiger, Archduke (large female size wasnt Lexias Dirtea had orange tipped antenna), and about the largest Charaxes I ever saw fly past to fast to id !

Looks like Koruthaialos sindu (The Bright Red Velvet Bob). K. side is common at forest edge in Malaysia.
