Name : Fulvious Pied Flat
Scientific Name : Pseudocoladenia dan

"Wings above rufous-brown; anterior wings with four discal greyish white spots, one largest and sublunate in cell, a small spot above it, and two beneath cell divided by the second median nervule, and three sometimes two small subapical greyish-white spots in suberect series, outer half of wing with obscure dark fasciae; posterior wings with discal and outer marginal dark fasciae. Wings beneath as above, but slightly paler. Body and legs more or less concolorous with wings.

Recorded from Kumaon (Doherty); Sikkim (de NicÚville, Elwes); Cachar (Wood-Mason and de NicÚville); Kangra, N.-W. Himalayas (Moore); Nilgiris (Hampson).

Race andamanica: "Specimens from Port Blair differ from continental ones in having the discal series of spots all run together so as to form an unbroken band, and the three subapical spots conjugated and in the same straight line, with their conjoined inner margin nearly straight and their outer festooned; and two examples exhibit in addition two smaller dots placed nearly parallel to the outer margin just below and external to the three subapical ones." (Wood-Mason and de Niceville in J. A. S. B., vol. I.) Habitat: Andamans, Cachar

In recording this variety from Cachar, Messrs. Wood-Mason and de Niceville note that specimens from that locality differ from Andaman specimens in the discal golden band of the upperside of the forewing being slightly broader, and the yellow spots on the underside of the hindwing obsolete; and that it agrees with P. dhanada, Moore, in the golden band not nearly reaching the anal angle of the forewing on the upperside (thereby differing from P. aurivittata, Moore), departing from it in having the cilia cinereous throughout (J. A. S. B., vol. lv).

Hola Arun, hermosa foto de esta exˇtica mariposa, me gusta el color que aunque poco llamativo es muy hermoso...saludos.

Hello Arun.

Wonderful photo from this butterfly. Quite good management from the sharpness.
Interesting point of view, showing us the upper side of the wings.
Good natural colors and a perfect contrast, very soft. Good management from the background.

Possibly would it have been better to cut the left side of the picture in order to keep only the butterfly in a square presentation.

All the best.

How wonderful butterfly, what colors! Prevails a strong red oxide, which combines with the green vellamente environment where ferns.
Gorgeous composition. Thanks for sharing, friend Arun ...
