Kallima inachis formosana is one of about 5,000 species of butterflies belonging to the Nymphalidae Family. Its common name is the Dead Leaf Butterfly [枯葉蝶] and is found in Taiwan’s low mountain areas of around 500-1500 meters above sea level. Adult lifespan is between two to three months and its diet consists of fruit and sap. It spectacularly mimics a dry leaf when its wings are closed.
If you’re an expert at identifying insects and would like a challenge please don’t hesitate to double check the identifications at the Taiwan’s Butterflies page.
UPDATE: Nope, definitely another Eurema blanda arsakia. Still at 54 species.
Stumbled upon a pair of Pale Blue Grass butterflies [Zizeeria maha okinawana] while on the Songboling Trail over the weekend. These two presented a great opportunity to play with my recently acquired Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/4.
