I am searching for image and information, like distribution etc of the genus Acesina. The Taxonomic tree is:

Kingdom:        Animalia
Phylum:         Arthropoda
Class:          Insecta
Order:          Lepidoptera
Superfamily:    Papilionoidea
Family:         Lycaenidae
Genus:          Acesina

According to Catalogue of Life this genus has the 4 species. I haven't found any information by searching web, even the species are extinct or not! Any pointer would be appreciated.

The genus Acesina has been revised and is now part of the genus Arhopala. The wikipedia page for Arhopala has some additional information on this genus.
