Commonly known as
"Eastern tiger swallowtail" is a species
of swallowtail butterfly native to eastern North America. It is one of the most
familiar butterflies in the eastern United States, where it is common in many
different habitats. It flies from spring to fall, during which it produces two
to three broods. Adults feed on the nectar of many species of flowers, mostly
from those of the Apocynaceae, Asteraceae, and Fabaceae families. P. glaucus
has a wingspan measuring 7.9 to 14 cm (3.1 to 5.5 in). The male is yellow with
four black "tiger stripes" on each fore wing. Females may be either
yellow or black, making them dimorphic. The yellow morph is similar to the
male, but with a conspicuous band of blue spots along the hindwing, while the
dark morph is almost completely black.
Commonly known as
The Great Imperial, and family of Lycaenidae, is found in southern Burma,
Thailand, Peninsular Malaya, Singapore, Sumatra.
The Great Imperial
has been described as "rather rare in lowland forest". The adult
butterfly appears to be a tree-top dweller and occasionally descends to feed or
lay eggs. Where encountered, the butterfly is observed to fly rapidly, and
stops to rest with its wings folded upright. Very rarely, it can be seen
sunbathing with its wings opened.
The male of the
Great Imperial is deep shining blue on the upperside, with a short oblique band
running across the black apical border and dorsal blue patch stretching from
the base of the forewing to the termen. Females are predominantly brown above,
with a white tornal area on the hindwing. The underside is mainly orange,
deepening towards the forewing apex, and the post-discal striae are confined to
the tornal half of the hindwing. Both sexes possess a pair of white sword-like
Commonly known as ‘Claudina Agrias’ is a butterfly of
the Nymphalidae family. It is found from Venezuela and Guyana to Bolivia. The
subspecies sardanapalus is found in Ecuador, Brazil and Peru. It is found in
primary and secondary rainforest at altitudes between 200 and 600 meters.
It is a canopy-lover species and it is rarely seen and
only observed when attracted to baits along trails.
Agrias claudina only appear to fly in hot weather in
the morning, are rarely seen in the afternoon.
Adults feed on rooting fruits and mammal dung and
females are most attracted to rotten fruits or fish.
Agrias claudina is under threat from loss of habitat
because of the extensive logging of forests in South America.
Eunica Eurota is a butterfly from the Nymphalidae
family, is native origin in Peru, and found in South America (the Amazon River basin and
the Andes, and Columbia) and French Guiana
The scientific name of the species was first validly
published in 1775 by Cramer.
Commonly known as “Emerald Swallowtail, Emerald
Peacock, or Green-banded Peacock”, is a butterfly of the genus Papilio
belonging to the Papilionidae family. It is native to southeast Asia, but
regularly kept in butterfly zoos around the world.
It has a wingspan reaching about 8–10 centimetres
(3.1–3.9 in). The dorsal sides of the wings are covered by a powder of green
scales and the background vary from dark greenish to black, with broad bright
emerald green metallic bands. The undersides are black with orange, white and
blue spots along the edges of hind wings, that show extended tails at the end.
The flight of these butterflies is swift and quite
fast. Caterpillars feed on plants of genus Euodia belonging to the Rutaceae,
commonly known as the rue or citrus family.
Commonly known as
" Silver-washed Fritillary " is one of Europe's largest and most
The butterfly is common and widely distributed across much of Europe, but
absent from northern Scandinavia, northern Britain, and the southern parts of
the Iberian peninsula. Beyond Europe it occurs in northern Algeria, and is
widespread across temperate Asia to China, Korea and Japan.
The common name refers to the suffused silvery markings on the underside
hindwings. The male is easily distinguished from the female by the 4 prominent
horizontal dark streaks on Its forewings. These contain androconial scales,
from which pheromones are released during the courtship flight. Females have a
similar pattern of black spots, but lack the horizontal streaks.
Commonly known as " The European Peacock ,more commonly known simply as the
Peacock butterfly ",
is a colourful butterfly, found in Europe and temperate Asia as far east as
Japan. Formerly classified as the only member of the genus Inachis (the name is
derived from Greek mythology, meaning Io, the daughter of Inachus). It should
not be confused or classified with the "American peacocks" in the
genus Anartia; these are not close relatives of the Eurasian species.
The Peacock butterfly is resident in much of its
range, often wintering in buildings or trees. It therefore often appears quite
early in spring. The Peacock butterfly has figured in research where the
role of eye-spots as an anti-predator mechanism has been investigated.
