Mating Pair of Plains Cupid Butterflies

Plains cupid butterfly (Luthrodes pandava, 蘇鐵綺灰蝶). I saw many of these plains cupids a month ago and now see fewer and fewer each day. Sometimes their undersides appear lighter, sometimes more brown. When together it is easier to notice the larger patch of orange on the male (right).
