I am not yet 100% sure about the ID, so, please, try Taractrocera luzonensis first and then compare to Potanthus sp.. Personally I tend to Taractrocera sp. with Taractrocera luzonensis as a possible candidate, but be careful! There might be some wrong or not trustable IDs around... These skippers are sometimes a real nightmare to ID! And do not exclude other genus as well...
