Common Baron

Euthalia aconthea


The Common Baron (Euthalia aconthea)—often called simply baron—is a medium-sized nymphalid butterfly native to India and Southeast Asia. It flies with stiff wing beats and often glides. The wing is not flapped very far below the horizontal.


Throughout peninsular India, except in the desert tracts, and the higher ranges of the Himalayas; Assam; Burma; Tenasserim, extending to the peninsula, and Sumatra.


It was sucking minerals nd fruit juices from a guava tree just outside my house.... and the photo is of a female.
