The Plains Cupid (Chilades pandava) is a species of Lycaenid butterfly found in countries such as India and Singapore. They are among the few butterflies that breed on plants of the cycad family.
This butterfly was first recorded in Mauritius in 2000 and is now considered a pest as its caterpillars feed on Sago Palms.
