Euploea crameri bremeri


Lucas 1853 - The Spotted Black Crow

Koh Samui only.

A not uncommon species. It can be seen in gardens, feeding on lantana flowers, and in secondary growth.

It can be distinguished by having the apical and inner submarginal spots much enlarged.

There is also a subspecies of Euploea core, E. c. graminifera which is very similar, but with this species, the males have a small black brand on the upperside forewing.
