|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|A Common Palmfly (Elymnias hypermnestra agina) from the Family Satyrina. They have an 8cm wingspan and are a lovely chocolate colour. |
Although I saw this species in the forests around Ton Soi waterfall, this one was taken at the Phuket butterfly garden.
The species is found throughout Asia, India, Sri Lanka, China, Phillipines especially in the vicinity of palm trees.
