The Striped Blue Crow, Euploea mulciber mulciber (Cramer)

This is a very common insect along the jungle paths both in the plains and the hills but even more so in the hills. In Fraser's Hills, it is found on road sides where suitable flowering bushes grow like Chromolaena odorata (Siam Weed) or escaped Eupatorium spp. from the gardens colonizing the rooadside and open areas.
