The Common Baron

Euthalia Aconthea


The female is more beautiful (and this is an exception among butterflies, as the rule is that the male is always more beautiful) . The one sitting on the apple is the female. The one on the leaf is the male. 0n the red apple you can see the underside of the female.


All over peninsular India


The females are fearless and stay on the fruits of fruit vendors on the busy city roadside.
