Celaenorrhinus sp. ? Id help needed

Postby Maris UK » Fri Aug 14, 2009 2:05 am

I was on holiday in Malaysia in April and photographed the species below whilst walking along the stream on the Parit Falls trail from Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands on 30th April. I think it may be in the genus Celaenorrhinus, but I'm not sure. (This was my first butterflying trip in Asia, so I'm a real novice). Please can someone confirm it's identity. Thank you

Maris, genus Celaenorrhinus should be correct, do check out C. putra.
