The Spotted Sawtooth, Prioneris thestylis malaccana (Fruhstorfer)

A true hill insect, Prioneris thestylis malaccana (Fruhstorfer) is found in a more elevated locality than the Redspot Sawtooth. It looks very much like a darker version of the Redspot Sawtooth but minus the red spot.

Essentially a hill insect, it was seen frequenting wooded lowland dipterocarp forests lately, puddling among groups of Appias and Graphiums (Pictures below).
