Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1892 edition. Excerpt: ...lunules as on primaries. F ringes black, chequered with white. Under surface yellowish green; markings on primaries as above, but the central band is white, and there is a patch of black in the submedian interspacc below the termination of the band; the discal area is more or less suffused with blackish: secondaries have the central band represented by a series of six blue-tinted white spots, the fourth often small and sometimes absent, the second large and trigonatc; submarginal band indicated by a series of dark green spots.

Euthalia pratti. (Plate XXI. fig. 5, 9.) Euthalia pratti, Leech, Entomologist, xxiv., Suppl. p. 4 (1891). Agrees with E. nara, Moore, in coloration, but the character of marking more nearly resembles that of E. patala, Koll.
