I sent the photo to my friend who also completed a butterfly trip in Sichuan in June. He confirmed positive about Coenonympha amaryllis.

Excellent, many thanks Dev

Next two are both Aporia, found flying together in scrubby habitat near Jiuzhaigou.

Aporia potanini nr Jiuzhaigou 26-5-18 - This one I am confident of, although it does seem to be a very variable species.
Aporia cf oberthuri nr Jiuzhaigou 26-5-18 - Much less confident of this det but seems to be closest fit I can find.

Hi Dave,

First two are bit nagging me. I have been been deep into the handbook trying to find something but nothing has panned so far. Handbook doesnt list P.pseudaegon in China list.
Something to consider is Polyommatus eros which has a wide distribution.

Agreed on C.argiades.

Another troublesome one, definitely a Satyrium type, possibly Satyrium tshikolovetsi
