Common Rose Butterfly

Pachliopta aristolochiae


The body is red. Upper wing has charcoal stripes. Hindwings have red and white spots.


It sailed over my house, just passed all the plants in my garden and settled on a tree outside my house...way above my head...I took two blind shots...and it was off.


My guide book by Arun Pratap Singh calls this Atrophaneura aristolochiae.
