    The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or one.

    Hi Khew,

    Dr Konrad Fiedler and co-workers published a very good research paper entitled: "Mud-puddling behavior in tropical butterflies: in search of proteins or minerals?" The authors listed more than 70 Bornean butterfly species showing puddling behaviour from their research work in 1996 and 1997. And diffrerent minerals and amino acids were used by the authors to investigate the puddling preferences of butterflies. The same paper I recommended to Jacqueline (See Butt. Ecology Behaviour & Evolution: Why do butterflies puddle?)

    If you and anyone interest to read it? I will send you a pc copy(only 10 copies available). Just send your postal address or fax. no. to my email (from member list). Sorry no scanning and send by email.

    Sorry I'm very late... I'll try to compile something...

    Prosotas nora superdates,(Common Line-Blue)

    Megisba malaya sikkima,(The Malayan)

    Euchrysops cnejus cnejus
    (Gram Blue)

    Lexias pardalis dirteana,(Archduke) (Female)
    This one was genuinely puddling this time, not slurping on fallen fruits!

    Papilio demoleus malayanus,(Lime Butterfly) Duo!

    Halpe ormenes vilasina,(Dark Banded Ace) (Male)
    I've seen them genuinely puddle on many occasions.
