Why we need a new Singapore Butterflies Observation Checklist?

There're a couple of Singapore Butterflies Checklists available on internet today, mostly maintained by old time butterflies collectors, either with old sighting records, or are not updated.

The problem of such checklists is that, it's maintained with "secrecy", the additional of new or removal of old butterfly species was made unclear, not open & to certain extend, individual likeness.

Butterfly species such as Delias pasithoe parthenope (Red-Base Jezebel), is still kept in most of the checklist, while in actual fact, the butterflies had not been seen for at least the past donkey years. Photos used in such checklists were taken in the neighboring country, and posted in the local checklist.

Same for Iraota distanti distanti, also not sighted for long, and the photo illustrated in local website, is the individual captured by the butterflies collector, pinched on the body to make it immobile, and appear standing in weird & weak position.

Species such as Hebomoia glaucippe aturia (Great Orange Tip), was sighted only once in the recent year but also included in the checklist. A simple notes of such sighting will help to public to understand it's a single sighting (possibly migratory species) and not a local native species.

New record for Singapore - Telicota linna (Linna Palm Dart)

Reference to the earlier posting on the early stage of Telicota linna.

After set & dissecting the genitalia of the skipper in question, and also consulted Dr. Laurence G. Kirton, the skipper were then confirmed as Telicota linna.

The keys used in identification illustrated below:

  • Butterflies of Thailand, Pisuth Ek-Amnuay, 1st Edition, 2006

New addition to the Butterfly of Singapore - Telicota linna (黑脉长标弄蝶)

Recently my friend found a 5th instar skipper caterpillar, initially we thought it's just a Telicota besta (most common Telicota sp. found in Singapore) but unlike the usual Telicota sp, the head capsule is black instead of the normal light yellowish-brown with black stripe.

It was not until we bred the skipper to adulthood and "set" for details examination. The result turn out to be surprising and a quick comparison against BMP turn out to be a T. linna. 

T. linna was not recorded in Singapore by the earlier author, and described as easily confused with T. besta. It's uncommon species in Peninsular Malaysia, with a restricted distribution from Sikkim to Peninsular Malaysia.

Early Stages
Larva were collected on a species of bamboo (Gramineae) and bred till adult. The species is uncommon in Peninsular Malaysia, and not recorded in Singapore by the earlier author. 
T. linna inhabit lowlands, and prefers open fields, and also occur in urban gardens with bamboo grove.

The larva fold a leaf of host plant with upper surface inwards to form leaf shelter. Pupation take place in the shelter. Pupa is bright orange brown in color and reach 21.5mm.

5th instar larva, feed on species of Bamboo.

Another 5th instar larva, head view

Pupa (21.5mm)

Newly hatched male

Key for separating the species of Telicota: Larger, forewing 16.5 - 18.0mm. Male valva with terminal process long and curved and shoulder projecting as a sharp, triangular point.

Early stage of Graphium sarpedon luctatius (Common Bluebottle) 青凤蝶

Early Stage of Graphium sarpedon luctatius (Common Bluebottle) 青凤蝶

Common Bluebootle is one of the common butterfly which can be found in both Parks and Nature Reserves, due to plenty of host plant (Cinnamomum iners - Wild Cinnamon 樟树) available & planted almost everywhere in Singapore. The fast flying butterfly is usually found together with Blue Jay (Graphium Evemon) feeding (puddle) on the roadside seepages.

Both genders are look alike except for the scent fold on the hindwing of the male.

Caterpillar Host Plants: Cinnamomum iners (Loranthaceae), Persea odoratissima, Alseodaphne and Litsea.

Malacca (Melaka) Butterflies (last update 4 Jul 2010)

Malacca, an earliest developed state in Peninsular Malaysia (since 1377), have not much primary forest left, especially in Central Melaka (Melaka Tengah) (314 km²) districts. However, there're still 4 Recreational Forest (Hutan Rekreasi) can be found around the state, namely Ayer Keroh, Bukit Baru Lebah, Sungei Udang and Tanjung Tuan Recreational Forest.

It is interesting to conduct butterflies survey on above recreational forest, since there're not much butterflies information found at this state.

Eggs guarding behavior of Hypolimnas anomala anomala (Malayan Eggfly)

The Malayan Eggfly, is a remarkable butterflies where the female showing a unique behaviour of "guarding" their eggs. Some female remains standing over their eggs even until the larvae dispersed to other leaves, and apparently may die in this position (Johnston et al., 1981). This remarkable behaviour is not recorded in others butterfly except Hypolimnas antilope (Schreiner and Nafus, 1991).

The particular female in the photos below, laid more than 1000 eggs. Click on the photo to view higher resolution image with marking.

From field observation, survival rate probably lower than 0.5 percent (only 5 caterpillars found to survive till 5th instar). However, in control environment, all 14 collected caterpillars reached 5th instar (100% survival rate), but interestingly, half of them didn't manage to hang the pupa firm enough on the branches provided but fell on to the bottom of container, and upon closer check, the silk-pad is simply to thin for the pupa to hold on and that could be one of the reason why the pupa can't attached firmly.

Early stage of Pelopidas agna agna (Little Branded Swift , 南亞谷弄蝶)

Early stage of Pelopidas agna agna (Little Branded Swift)


Pelopidas agna agna (Little Branded Swift), is very similar to Pelopidas mathias mathias (Small Branded Swift), both are the smallest Pelopidas species in Singapore.

Identifying of the species rely heavily on the male forewing band position versus the 2 radial hyaline spots. The female however, according to several reference, almost impossible to differentiate when compare to P. mathias.

Probably due to small size and difficulties in ID, the species is not in the current Singapore Butterflies Checklist, thus with the discovery, this will be a new addition to the known butterflies fauna in Singapore.

Pelopidas agna agna

ID key exert from Butterflies of Hong Kong:
On the forewing upperside, a line through the two cell spots projected backwards passes inward towards the midline, in male passing through the lower end of the brand.

ID key illustration:
Hong Kong Butterflies - Philip Yik-fui Lo | Wing-Leung Hui: The 2 radial hyaline spots, if joined in lines, may reach the end of the brand.

ID key exert from BMP:
- Smaller, forewing less than 20mm. Male upperside forewing with a naroow discal stigma from middle of vein 1b to the spot in space 2.
P. agna (17.5 - 20 mm)
- male upperside forewing lower end of stigma reaches vein 1b slightly closer to the termen than to the wing base. Underside hindwing ochreous without a grey tinge.

ID key illustration:
Male upperside forewing lower end of stigma reaches vein 1b slightly closer to the termen (B) than to the wing base (A).

Early stage observation
Larva found at forest fringe in the leaves shelter on Imperata cylindrica (Lalang). The early stage of this species closely resembled of those of P. mathias. Larva hostplant including Panicum maximum (Guinea Grass).

Family: Nymphalidae
Members of this family are generally brush-footed butterflies, this refers to the reduced pair of the first legs or forelegs that are covered in dense hairs. The front pair of legs is inconspicuous and much smaller that the other four. They are not used for walking or holding but for cleaning their antennae and other parts of their body.
Butterflies in this family have a distinctive way of flying, after every wingbeat, they hold their wings stretched out from their body and glide for a while without moving their wings.
