Common Silverline

Spindasis vulcanus

The Common Silverline is found in open natural vegetation and is exclusive to the Indian Subcontinent.

Brilliant silver lines enclosed in black bordered red bands makes your first encounter with the Silverline quite unforgettable. Its reluctance to fly away also allows you to get really close to this butterfly. However its flight is extremely swift and once it takes off it is very difficult to follow its course.

Occurs throughout India, except in the arid regions of north-west and eastern Himalayas and Assam. A fast flying butterfly, frequenting open country and has an affinity to the cold ashes of wood fires, burnt grasses etc, visits flowers of low growing plants, especially of tomthumb Alternanthera, Leea indica and Tridax procumbens.

Distribution: India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Thailand.

Hello Kiran,
a beautful presentation of a beautiful small butterfly.
The siverlines are nicely visible and the colour pattern is professionally shown.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Kiran,

Beautiful picture of this wonderful butterfly. Good POV. Beautiful colours. I wonder why you cut so much in the bottom of the picture.

Ciao Kiran,
questo è uno dei più bei Licenidi che conosco!
Il disegno e i colori del rovescio delle ali è veramente magnifico.
Altrettanto bella è la tua immagine, perfettamente a fuoco sulle ali e con uno sfondo appropriato, che mette ancora più in risalto il contorno delle ali.
