  Indian Leaf Butterfly

 

PREVIOUS BUTTERFLY NEXT BUTTERFLY Thailand

An Indian Leaf Butterfly, spotted near Thi Loh Suh in Tak province. The upperside of its wings are of a striking florescent violet-blue colour, with a bright orange stripe halfway up the forewings and a black band with a white spot at the top, lined all around with a light, narrow border.

 

With its wings closed, it is a textbook example of camouflage, as it closely resembles a dry leaf. In part due to this natural disguise, it is difficult to spot in the wild. See also List of Thai Insect Names.
