Random Gallery - The Pale Mottle

Random Butterfly Gallery
04 - The Pale Mottle (Logania marmorata damis)

This week's random butterfly is the Pale Mottle (Logania marmorata damis) which belongs to the group of butterflies known as The Harvesters (Subfamily : Miletinae). The caterpillars of this family are carnivorous and feed on aphids, mealy bugs, coccids, ant larvae and so on. The butterfly often flies restlessly for long periods. This opportunistic shot of a resting Pale Mottle was taken by Anthony Wong whilst out on his weekend outing at the Zhenghua Park Connector.
