The Common Wanderer (Pareronia valeria) is a medium sized butterfly of the family Pieridae, that is, the Yellows and Whites, and is found in India.
Ashih,yes, you are right, but usually upper wings are bigger than lower wings. Adarsha pics shows that all pairs of wings are almost the same
UrifahRidlo,All butterflies have pair of upperwings and underwings.Its lucky shot where Adarsha grabbed wings movement in different directions.
@Urifah: Thank you :) I too seen it first time at my place!
four wings butterfly, just awesome!!! never seen at my place
@Ruby: Ha ha ha ..Indeed it is!
I saw it! But dont know what happened to me that time! I completely forgot to take the video!!!!
@Adarsha, that would be a sight to see.
Thank you Oneng!
very pretty..nice pic Adi..
Thank you Next...As said by Ashish, o wish i could hav taken video...He says all four wings move differently when it flies!! Amusing na?
Beautiful series, Adarsha!
@Lauren: Oh...like that..may be u r right...
All butterflies have 4 wings...maybe this is some kind of misshapen specimen with the hind wings enlarged?
@Nuwan: When i googled, i found only closed wing wanderer mating...Is it four winged then??
@Jellis : It was flying..i too find no two abdomens or heads...I doubt its mating...Do Four winged butterflies exist???
Thank you for the ID Nuwan!
Could be since the pattern on both wings are slightly different that could be male and female, but I don't see another head or abdomen.
mating couple ?
