    Butterfly dogs don't like baths. They only like to puddle... in their own pee!

    In the spirit of science, there really is no such thing as a 'failed experiment.' Any test that yields valid data is a valid test.

    This upper wing shot does not looks like the Doleschallia bisaltide pratipa at C&P4 Plate 24 fig 4 but matches the Doleschallia bisaltide pratipa depicted at Pisuth Plate 162 , N46b the male upper side .

    Unless there is another subspecies I would give it an educated guessas Doleschallia bisaltide pratipa.




    Quite certain that it is as IDed by Ellen as Troides amphrysus ruficolis.


    Any other view of the IDs of these two??

    Unfortunately we do not have a underside shot in C&P4 of Doleschallia bisaltide pratipa.

    However , the hind wing marking of this shot looks suspiciously close to Pisuth Plate 162 N46a the male underside plate of Doleschallia bisaltide continentalis.

    Do we have this species in Peninsula Malaya???




    Now it will be interesting if the upper side shot is from this same specimen!!!

    What do you say?

    I was just telling Ellen yesterday, yes, the male/female shot is of the Malayan Birdwing (Troides amphrysus ruficollis). The other species she mentioned is generally a montane species.

    As for the Autumn Leaf, the markings are too variable. All the white spots on the underside are not too reliable for differentiation.

    Yes, ssp continentalis (formerly known as siamensis) is known to occur in Peninsula Malaysia.

    Thus far, the separation of the subspecies is not easy. But our local one (bisaltide) or what we previously called australis has five subapical white spots on the forewings. This species is currently known only from the Singapore Zoo, where it was bred on a plant near the Fragile Forest cage. Perhaps it's time to get some more specimens to compare.
