Many thanks, Jimmi!

We can always use a real bug expert in this forum as most of us just admire their amazing variety on Lamma but are not so knowledgeable in recognising and classifying them. I left my own biology degree studies well behind me when I got bitten by the computer bug...

Nice picture - don't know what it is except that it's a butterfly rather than a moth - see the long antennae with clubbed tips (moths have short feathery antennae)

Anonymous Guy - I think it is a chestnut angle (Odontoptilum angulatum) but his/her wings are a bit ragged.

On the path to Sok Kwu Wan today. Is this a large faun?

It looks like a little brown job. Just kidding. I think it is a female common duffer (Discophora sondaica), which is considered to be uncommon in Hong Kong. That would be my best guess, but it is tricky with so few markings.

I have a brief guide to Hong Kong butterflies, but there is a great website maintained by the Hong Kong Lepidopterists Society, if anyone is interested. It shows both the upper and lower sides of many species. Here is the webpage:

http://www.hkls.org/butterflies.html

Also a photographic handbook of the butterflies of Hong Kong was just published by this organization, and I have heard it is good.

I don't mind making an attempt to identify from pictures on this forum, though; it is good practice for me.

Thanks........ had a good look through the Butterfly guide (previously mentioned) but couldn't find this particular chap. Sometimes referred to in the handbook is "Dry season" colouring....., so thought it might be one of those.
But I'll go with "Female Commom Duffer"........ sounds like a good description for an aggressive "Essex Girl" :wink:

Nice picture - both the butterfly and the flowers. Looks like a Red Helen (Papilio helenus).

It was a good day to be a frog (and if one of you makes another French joke...).

Nice June 16 shot (I can't see the other one). I have checked all the sources I know of and can't find anything like it. It's a beautiful butterfly.
