No. 55

Eurema hecabe
Assuming this is Eurema hecabe [菏氏黃蝶] and not Eurema blanda arsakia [台灣黃蝶] then that would bring the total number of different species photographed at 55.

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.

Found this lovely specimen at my new favorite spot to photograph butterflies at a garden behind the Taiwan Provincial Government Building in Jhongsing Village.  The real visual treat is when this species opens its wings… stay tuned!
