  Great Orange Tip

 

PREVIOUS BUTTERFLY NEXT BUTTERFLY Myanmar

In appearance, the Great Orange Tip is similar to the male, white-winged Yellow Orange Tip, i.e. a male Yellow Orange Tip in wet-season form (fig.), yet with some additional arrow-like, triangular black markings in the orange patch on the forewings. This one was spotted on a palm tree in a garden in Yangon. There are many subspecies, with the dominant species in Thailand, Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore and Myanmar being Hebomoia glaucippe aturia.

 

The latter has a black border all around the orange patch on the upper forewings and a double row of black patches on the outer edges of the upper hind wings, that become increasingly diffuse and eventually disappear completely towards the inner apexes. See also List of Thai Insect Names.
