Male upperside black. Forewing with the following green markings: a spot at the extreme base of the costal margin, a transverse short bar near base of cell and seven spots beyond, two and two except the apical spot ,Hind wing: three series of similarly-coloured markings that ran transversely across the wing more or less parallel to the dorsal margin

What is Costa....Please give us an introduction...so that we can follow what you are writing!
So,what is the arrangement and structure of wings , since many salient characteristics for identification are in the wing structure!

[4/9, 12:34] Subham Butterfly:
Costal margin: projecting line on the side of a butterfly's wing.

[4/9, 14:12] Subham Butterfly:
Underside: fuliginous (sooty) brown or brownish black, more or less suffused with pink along the costal margin, on apical area and along the outer margin of the discal markings on the forewing, broadly along the dorsal and terminal margins and at base on interspaces 6 and 7 on the hindwing

 In tropical areas many species hide away under leaves even when it's sunny, and only come out into the open to undertake specific tasks such as feeding or reproducing.

This site keeps all the world wide data about the butterflies

[4/9, 20:19] Arunan:
How reliable it is? Is there a peer reviewing of the articles on the site?

[4/9, 20:36] Subham Butterfly: http://www.learnaboutbutterflies.com/
This website is adrian hoskin wich is author of butterflies world and 1000 butterflies
This site is takimg the data of many papers(journal) etc,and many scintist are also connected with it

[4/9, 20:47] Arunan:
Don't you have an Induan site which you used to use of NCBS?! What happened to that?!!

[4/9, 20:49] Subham Butterfly:
Yes yes i have it

Working on butterflies

[4/10, 00:17] Subham Butterfly:
The idea of work
The genesis of the study began in December 2010, in Boston. Thinking about how ecological pressures and co-evolutionary dynamics may shape the formation of animal communities, Dr. Kunte turned to his favourite organisms: tropical butterflies. Some butterfly species are unpalatable to their predators, usually owing to the toxins they accumulate as caterpillars from the plants on which they feed. Hundreds of palatable butterfly species that are not related to these toxic species have come to closely resemble them over evolutionary times. This type of mimicry fools predators, who avoid these perfectly palatable butterflies by confusing them with toxic species with which they have prior unpleasant experience. Thus, there is a clear parasitic relationship between the toxic models and their palatable mimics. Together, these butterfly species form clearly defined ecological communities called ‘mimicry rings’.

[4/10, 00:18] Subham Butterfly:
Dr. Kunte’s team began sampling mimetic butterfly communities of the Western Ghats of India, which had never been studied and characterised properly.

@⁨Subham Butterfly⁩ how do you think palatable species like Common Mormon have *'evolved' to closely be resemble the unpalatable ones like common rose or cromson rose*, for example?

What do you mean bymimicry rings @⁨Subham Butterfly⁩ ?
