Double-branded crow butterfly
Entomological studies of a butterfly and a caterpillar.
Figures 1 and 2 are male and female Euploea sylvester, or double-branded crow butterflies, referred to here as Narmada montana. Their upperside is rich brown, as are their forewings, with a marginal row of white spots on their hindwings.
Figure 2a depicts the larval stage of the double- branded crow. It is pale pink with deep pink bands and black and red spots. Shown side on, the caterpillar is depicted as if crawling along a leaf. The pupa, hanging left as viewed, is yellow.
