Stichophthalma uemurai, Nishimura, 1998

Gallery                   Species list

A fabulous recent discovery from Vietnam, found in south central province of Lam Dong with a sub species Stichophthalma uemurai gailai from the central Vietnam province of Gai Lai, I have no specimens of the sub species yet but I understand they are a little larger than the nominate and the underside hindwing spotting is a little different.

As can be seen in the specimens on here, there is quite a variation within the nominate species with some very blue males and females.

I hope that later I can get the sub species to compare the underside but if anyone has photo's I'd welcome them.
