Gorgeous one, Andy. There is no doubt that HK is a better butterfly destination. I'm planning to include the distribution range also in the coming posts which is a literal translation from my handbook.

The distribution range for Papilio paris in China is East, Central and South China including Taiwan.

Chinese butterfly books.

The new 4 volume set is available on Tao Bao - https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm...ucket=8#detail at a little under HK$3000 (circa US$385) per set.

There is an older book, in 2 volumes, by Zhao (alt. spelling=Chou) (1996, I think), which is also in Chinese, with scientific names used throughout, and some keys in English. Taxonomy is now a little outdated.
Monographia Rhopalocerorum Sinensium (2-Volume Set) [Chinese]: Monograph of Chinese butterflies. ISBN: 7534915740
Also expensive (via NHBS, for example), but probably available for less if one searches.

Plains Cupid (Chilades pandava)

Time to revive the thread. It's been busy couple of months to settle the new house, car and the paperwork surrounding it but it's also winter to do any proper butterfly trips in East China.

Coming back to the butterflies, back in October, i saw something new in my neighborhood, it had denim blue upperparts with a shortish tail. I dint have bins or camera at that time. On the following weekend, i hit the Paotaiwan Wetland park at the mouth of Huangpu river. It was the Golden Week and the crowd was scary. I spent couple of hours in the park before the people started flooding. Yes, i did find the blue and some odd butterflies which i haven't seen in Shanghai before.

Name : Plains Cupid
Scientific Name : Chilades Pandava
Chinese Name : 曲纹紫灰蝶
Range : South of Yangtze River

Sichuan trip approaching rapidly, I saw a copy of the book but decided against it, not just because of the price but the weight! So i am resorting to compiling my own illustrated checklist, very time consuming but hopefully worth the effort.

Thumbs up

Hi Dave,

End of May is a prime time for butterflies in Sichuan and the specialties occur in high altitudes (4000m above msl). I looked into my mate's Itinerary and it looked juicy, i was very much tempted to do it but again Sichuan needs loads of homework and i found it first hand back in 2011.

Good luck in Sichuan.

Chinese Hairstreak (Amblopala avidiena)

Hot of the plate. April 8th started with our regular spring watch, only to be detained by the Police at the XiaoYangshan Port island, well they thought i was there to bomb the port and disrupt the trade route. After 90 minutes of Same Questions/Same answers routine, they let us go. The cop told me in his tattered English "Go back Shanghai, See bird in Century Park".

It was of any coincidence, two years ago, i had the major passage of "Asian Swallowtails" (9 April 2016). And two years later, we had another big passage just 24 hours ahead of the previous sighting (8th April 2018).

It was good to see massive no's of Swallowtails but our butterfly of the day is the "Chinese Hairstreak". We saw only two individuals, they were seen most of the time on the new leaf buds as it seemed they were feeding on them.

Common Name : Chinese Hairstreak
Scientific Name : Amblopala avidiena
Chinese Name : 丫灰蝶
Distribution : Shaanxi, Hunan, Anhui, Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Fujian

Lesser Mime (Papilio epycides)

By the end of the day, when we finished admiring a lonely male Brown-headed Thrush (that's the first since two years). A speeding car set off a butterfly and the flight silhouette gave us an impression that it has transparent wings.

It din't give us much trouble as it quickly settled down. It was very apparent that the butterfly showed up at the dusk and let us observe it at close distance, it was migrating and all it wanted to rest.

Common Name : Lesser Mime
Scientific Name : Papilio epycides
Chinese Name : 小黑斑凤蝶
Distribution : South, SouthWest and East China

Species No.20 : China Nawab

Birding has been real slow this spring, migrants here and there but nothing spectacular. The weather has been incredibly great, no rain or haze in the last four weeks which makes a good passage for birds without staying long for stop over.
I had lost the intent of hitting the coastal jaunts after four continuous weeks of hard birding. So a casual visit to the Wild Animal Zoo yielded couple of "Red Ring Skirts" but the mega pick was a single "China Nawab" near the Elephant enclosure. The last time i saw it was in Jiangxi province and the handbook has a illustration of a specimen collected from Jiangsu province. Otherwise, the butterfly has a wide distribution across China.

Common Name : China Nawab
Scientific Name : Polyrua narcaea
Chinese Name : 二尾蛱蝶
Distribution : Hubei, Hunan, Sichuan, Guizhou, Guangdong, Guangxi, Fujian, Yunnan, Beijing, Henan, Hebei, Shandong, Shanxi, Shaanxi, Gansu, Taiwan.

Species No.21 : European Peacock

A very old but a mega tick for East China. Back in October 2016, i was fairly new to butterflies and had it put down as Asian Comma but later that year when i saw Blue Admiral, thought that could be it. Only when i was revisiting the old photos and cross checking with the hand book, i stumbled onto the right ID.

As per the handbook and the Chinese Wiki, its range is mostly North China and nowhere close to East China. That makes it a jumbo record for Shanghai/Zhejiang.

Common Name : European Peacock
Scientific Name : Inachis io
Chinese Name : 孔雀蛱蝶
Distributiion : Heilongjiang, Liaoning, Gansu, Qinghai. Xinjiang

Do you think this is my species, I have no image of that species and can't search internet here.

What about this one, at Longcanggou today.

Hi Dave,

This is Neope serica. Im not able to get a conclusive ID on the previous one. Will try to get more details from the underexposed parts and refer the handbook over the weekend.

Have fun!

You are in safe hands, are you guys heading to Jiuzhaigou? Sid mentioned in the China section of BF, that he will be heading towards JZ in May for the first time after the quake. Throw my pleasantries to Sid as well.

N.serica has a wide distribution range as per the handbook (Henan, Anhui, Zhejiang, Fujian, Jiangxi, Guangdong, Guangxi, Sichuan and Yunnan)

I have just brought out some details from the underexposed wings which is clear enough to get the details. It's Neope agrestis found in Sichuan and Yunnan.

1. Neope shirozui (found in Sichuan and Yunnan)
2. Looks good for Lethe titania (found in Sichuan, Chongqing, Hubei, Jiangxi and Guangdong)
3.The Blues are difficult, do you have any shots with its underwing? It could be Pratapa icetas which has lost one of its streamers as i can see a faint of a orange spot at the end of the hindwing.

Thanks Dev, that's very useful.

We are heading in the direction of Jiuzhaigou but itinerary flexible so not sure when.

Here's one from Longcanggou that I can identify Bhutanitis thaidina

Congrats on the B.thaidina, it's a beauty. Good luck for the Rufous-headed Robin on JZ. I'm heading to Fujian for the next couple of days, just doing a recon of the trip from two years ago. Just to see what i missed on the butterfly front plus some missed chickens.

Back home and starting the long process of labeling and identifying my photos. Here is a Neope from Labahe which I provisionally identify as pulaha?
