Noguchiphaea yoshikoae


In August I had seen several females of Noguchiphaea yoshikoae at Tam Dao, close to the resort. I saw only teneral females then, so here at least was a species that I might still bump into this late in the season. Indeed, I was happily surprised to see 1 or 2 males today and one female. One of the males was holding territory over a puddle by the side of the stream, whereas the female was seen inside the forest a little further removed from the stream. It is a very nice species.
