Butterflies in the Mountains - July 2014

Recently i decided to spent a few hours in the morning at a popular resort located in Pahang, Malaysia. Instead of vacationing up there i have been busy looking at its butterfly population. Here are some of them which i have manage to photographed:

Common 3 Ring (Ypthima pandocus corticaria)

Could this be a Malayan Tree Nymph (Idea hypermnestra) ?

Smaller Wood Nymph (Ideopsis Gaura perakana)
Reason: it has rounder wings

Black Veined Tiger (Danuas melanippus hegesippus)

Striped Blue Crow (Euploea mulciber)

Chocolate Tiger (Parantica melaneus sinopion)
Chocolate Tigers are said to be common in Malaysia but uncommon in Singapore.

Swallowtail Moth (Lyssa zampa)
This moth has appeared in abundance in the month of July and it can be found almost every where - near the coastal areas, cities and right up to this mountainous region. 

Malayan Jezebel (Delias ninus ninus)

Note: some of these butterflies may also occur in lower elevations / low land forest.
