The Pendlebury's Zebra, Graphium (Pathysa) ramaceus pendleburyi (Corbet)

This is essentially a forest insect and is uncommon throughout the year but rather seasonal in appearance. It was last observed in March in small numbers and then reappeared only in September in the same localities. It looks like a dark brown version of the Malayan Zebra and can be seen puddling with.
