The Small Red Bob, Idmon obliquans obliquans (Mabille)

This tiny skipper is about the size of the Chestnut Bob, Iambrix salsala and may be encountered on the forest's edge in the morning sun. At a glance, it looks like a miniature version of the Sumatran Bob, Arnetta verones but its uppersides of the forewing has an incomplete discal band which is absent in the earlier.
