The Dark Yellow-banded Flat, Celaenorrhinus aurivittatus cameroni (Distant)

This is a fairly common butterfly in open forest patches especially by streams and are often seen settled with wings open flat, distinguishing it from the Velvet Bobs which has almost the same colour scheme: plain dark brown bodies with a patch on the forewings (discal band). They have a tendancy to settle on the underneath of broad leaves when disturbed. Locally common, usually in sun-speckled undergrowths.
