Saw this Lycaenid today in Central Catchments. It looks like D. epijarbus but is slightly bigger. Unfortunately we did not get the see the upperside.

Thanks Richard. We have doubt but will check it out again.

Anuj,
Next time will make sure we get a look at the upperside. :D

This has finally been id by Dr Seow as Deudorix staudingeri.
- Underside white striae poor, sullied & fading, the dark striae more prominent than in epijarbas.

This species was listed in The Butterflies of the Malay Peninsula (BMP) as recorded in Singapore but has not been sighted by any one until this photo record. :thumbsup:
