The Abisara species found there are Abisara saturata kausambioides (Malayan Plum Judy) and Abisara savitri savitri (Malay Tailed Judy). The Rapala is most likely Rapala pheretima sequeira (Copper Flash) as I foound quite a few there around Mount Impiah.

Thanks for the tips. Was doing recce with plant group and didn't have camera with me. We saw quite a few interesting butts last week. The place has lots of potential for butts. I can already visualized Common Birdwings gliding all over Sentosa :thumbsup: ;)

See you this Sun at Sentosa.

The find of the day on Sunday, 31 January 2010 is this rare skipper. This is the Cephrenes trichopepla (Yellow Palm Dart).

This shot showing the top side, I believe is the only shot ever taken here of this very large skipper.

The amorous pair of Common Sailor looks like Short Banded Sailor. CS has black outline on white on the underside.

I agree with you. The mating pair is SBS.
