Plain Banded Awl (H.vitta)

This skipper was seen at one of the forest trails in FRIM, Kepong, Peninsular Malaysia on 1 May 2015 at 12.33pm.

Plain Banded Awl
I believe this skipper is a "Plain Banded Awl" rather than a "White-tipped Palmer". Its wing beats produced a buzzing sound which can be heard if it flies near you. 



Lots of other butterflies were seen but they were all quite common - mainly comprising of Chocolate Grass Yellow, Chocolate Albatross. Here are some CGY photos:



This one was sampling some bird's poo.
