I was in Selangor with my family last week. While my family was out shopping, armed with a GPS, I drove to Ulu Yam in search of butterflies. The last time I was there was about 10 years ago and it was there that I saw my first Banded Peacock (see this post).
The Giant Saturn is rare and this one is a female, with the marking of the upperside forewing white in color. According to BMP, the female attains a wingspan of 145 mm., and has the largest wing area of any Malaysian butterfly !
At the same place I also saw the Malayan Jungle Glory - Thaumantis odana pishuna.
I saw a few Striped Ringlet – Ragadia makuta siponta, fluttering among the bushes. This is a common butterfly in the Malaysia forest.
Before I knew it, it is time to head back to the hotel. I will definitely come back to Ulu Yam the next time I visit PJ/KL.
