  Bhutan Glory

 

PREVIOUS BUTTERFLY NEXT BUTTERFLY Thailand

A Bhutan Glory at Siam Insect Zoo (fig.), near Chiang Dao, the only place in Thailand where this butterfly ever occurred, though now assumed extinct from Thailand. Above, it is mostly blackish-brown with slim, wavy, off-white lines that run vertically across the wings.

 

The hindwing has a prominent reddish-orange patch with bluish-black and white ocelli, as well as a narrow yellowish-orangey band near the lower edge. Below, the design is similar but rather greyish. See also List of Thai Insect Names.
