    A few other nature enthusiasts have reported several more sightings of the Wanderer. This is also on Ubin, and towards the Malay Village side of the island. It appears that there is a possibility that it's breeding on the island, and members should be on the lookout for the host plant (which I'm still asking NParks for a picture of).

    It's also been seen on several trails around the Village Headman's house.

    The recorded hostplant( Capparis heydeana) is non-native here. The only native Capparis in Singapore is I think C. micrantha.
    In the past P. valeria probably feeds on this.

    A cultivated variety of C. micrantha is grown in Malay villages for its peppery seeds. It is called melada and is said to be very common in ricefield region of Kedah & Perlis.

    Perhaps the headman should know whether melada shrubs are found in the village.
