  • Title
    A century later the Manipur Argus Callerebia suroia Tytler, 1914 (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Satyrinae) recorded in its type locality in Manipur, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    The present paper reports the sighting of Callerebia suroia Tytler, 1914 at Shirui Kashong Peak, Ukhrul District which confirms the continued presence of the species in Manipur State, India. The butterfly was sighted on 13 July 2016 near the footpath leading to the summit at an altitude of 2,330m. Callerebia suroia Tytler, 1914 is protected under Schedule II of the Indian Wildlife (Protection) Act 1972. The sighting of such very rare species in Manipur after a decade shows that more surveys are needed in the hills and valleys of Manipur to determine the butterfly fauna of the region.

  • Title
    Recent sightings of two very rare butterflies, Lethe margaritae Elwes, 1882 and Neptis nycteus de Nicéville, 1890, from Sikkim, eastern Himalaya, India
    Type
    Journal Article
    Description
    Lethe margaritae Elwes, 1882 and Neptis nycteus de Nicéville, 1890 are very rare butterflies that are endemic to the Himalaya, and are legally protected in India. However, they have not been recorded in India in nearly 100 years. Here we review the available published information on their type localities, distribution and other natural history, and then report two recent sightings from Sikkim, northeastern India. Our sightings constitute rediscoveries of the Indian populations of these species.

    Description
    The Tawny Palmfly butterfly, Elymnias panthera (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Satyrinae), is a Malayan species that is also known from the Nicobar Islands. Here we report sighting of E. panthera from the Bethuadahari Wildlife Sanctuary in West Bengal, eastern India. This is the first sighting of the species from mainland India, and is a possible range extension of the species into northeastern India.
