This is my 2nd trip to Fraser’s Hill this year and one of my all time best ! The best because we had the pleasure to feast on the authentic and BEST ‘Mao Shan Wang’ (Gua Musang) durian in Malaysia and I saw many spectacular and rare butterflies out of which 2 are lifer* for me :
- Graphium empedovana
- Chilasa paradoxa aenigma -f. eucyana
- Lamproptera, most likely L. meges.
- Ixias pyrene alticola
- Amathuxidia amythaon dilucida
- Sumalia daraxa theoda
- Hestina nama nama*
- Prothoe franck uniformis*
Here are some butterfly photos from the trip :
The Striped Blue Crows, sipping seepage from on rock surface.
Staff Sergeant (Athyma selenophora selenophora)
The Green Commodore (Sumalia daraxa theoda) - A highland species which like to settle high above ground, can be mistaken for a small G. sarpedon. This is the first time I managed to photograph this species.
