Tagiades japetus titus
Butterfly. Distinct whitish wing underparts. Philippine Endemic
Your welcome Marco. You are right - the club on the end of the antennas is barely noticeable.
Nice! Dint notice you put in Titus earlier with your ID :)
Yes. As it is endemic to the Philippines.
Yes! Thanks Brian! Since it wasn’t fringed or brushy then it wasn’t also the typical clublike antenna of butterflies, I got confused 🤦🏻♂️lol 😂 Haha thanks for this. Will edit my description now haha.
Hi Marco and welcome to Project Noah. Great job on getting a good picture of these fast flyers. It is actually a butterfly. Typically butterflies have a long, thin antenna with a ball or club on the end. Moths are usually shorter feathery antennas.
Thanks Brian! Yes, looks like a snow flat. Possibly Philippine common snow flat?
