Potanthus is a large genus of skipper butterflies. They are commonly known as Darts. They are found from South Asia to East Asia, and down to maritime Southeast Asia (though not extending towards New Guinea). It includes about 35 species, all of which look very similar to each other and are oftentimes only reliably identifiable through the examination of the male genitalia. (From Wikipedia)
