Striped Black Crow

Euploea eyndhovii gardineri


This is a Striped Black Crow that i found near the bushes in my backyard. The wingspan of this butterfly is about 80 mm.

This butterfly has velvety brown wings above and the forewing is usually unmarked. The hindwing has a series of white submarginal spots and a corresponding row of whitish submarginal streaks. The dorsum of the forewing is curved in the male, but is straight in the female of this species.


- Spotted near the bushes in my backyard. Usually it can be found around the garden and forested areas.


- This butterfly is from the Nymphalidae family. Thanks to Jonathan Hiew for the ID.
