PREVIOUS BUTTERFLY NEXT BUTTERFLY Vietnam

A Tailed Judy spotted in Sapa, in northern Vietnam. It has the scientific name Abisara neophron and is widespread throughout the Orient. Its upperside is a variable brown, with a broad slanting white band on the forewings, which narrows posteriorly, as well as an unclear, narrower, shadowy pale brownish-white line, that runs on the outer side of the broad white band, with which it forms a V-shape.

 

Above, the hindwings have dull whitish lines on the fringes, two large jet-black spots reminiscent of eyespots, and a white-tipped tail. Sexes are similar though the brown of the wings' upper sides is generally paler in the female than in the male. See also List of Thai Insect Names.
