PREVIOUS BUTTERFLY NEXT BUTTERFLY Thailand

A male Common Archduke, of the species with orange tips to its antennae. It has mainly black wings with small, faint blue and orange spots at the top, whilst the posterior wings have a grayish light-blue outer border with black spots.

 

There are two species found in Thailand, with identical patterns and colours on their wings, though they are differentiated by the fact that one has orange tips to its antennae (seen above), whilst the other has black tips (seen to the right). See also List of Thai Insect Names.
