We saw lots of interesting and rare butterflies. Below are some butterfly photos from the trip.
Rajah Brooke’s Birdwing (Troides brookiana albescens), very common at Gopeng and forest reserves in the state of Perak. They can even be seen at Adeline’s Rest House and Villa.
Male Malayan Birdwing (Troides amphrysus), not uncommon in the state of Perak,
Female Common Birdwing (Troides helena cerberus).
We saw Banded Peacock (Papilio palinurus palinurus) on 2 separate occasions.
Red-Spot Marquis (Bassarona recta monilis) – Another lifer.
The Siamese Black Prince (Rohana parisatis siamensis) - This is different from the Tokin Black Prince (Rohana tonkiniana siamensis) I saw in Thailand. Another lifer.
Orchid tit (Chliaria othona) - This uncommon lycaenid was photographed at Adeline’s Rest House and the Villa. Another lifer.
