The Plain Lacewing, Cethosia methypsea methypsea (Butler)

The Lacewings are common insects in the plains as well as the wooded country and can be seen quite frequently in villages frequenting flowering patches on the roadside. This species is distinguishable from C. hypsea by its narrow white submarginal band on its hindwings.
