The Common Three-ring, Ypthima pandocus corticaria (Butler)

This is indeed one of the commonest butterfly to be found anywhere with a patch of greenery that can support animal life. It is found in gardens, even in urbanised areas, as well as wooded places at all elevations, from lowland to montane.

Fraser's Hills 09 June 2013 @ 14:16. This butterfly is very common on patches of roadside grass along the trunk road to Jeriau, even more so now that it has been much abandonned due to landslide. They seem to be much larger in size in comparison to those found in the plains.
