Zebra Blue

Leptotes Plinius Fabricius (Old: Syntarucus Plinius Fabricius)


Wingspan 22-30 mm. This is not a Pierrot, though it had earlier been misclassified as such.


Indian Subcontinent and parts of South East Asia


I thought it was a pierrot. But Krushnamegh Kunte's 'Butterflies of Peninsular India' was useful for correct identification. For more pictures see
