Appias lalassis indroides (Honrath)

This butterfly is a submontane and montane species but was found quite regularly from May onwards puddling in moist spots by the stream singly and sometimes in small numbers. It has a much more elongated forewings than A. indra, visibly curved at the apex but the uppersides has the same plain black and white colouring. The undersides ressemble that of the Great Orange Tip with brown mottling. They sometimes descend to the foothills in deeply wooded vicinities with water.
