Introduction

Introduction:

The genus Euploea ranges from the Comoro Islands in the Indian Ocean to the Fiji Islands, Samoa and Tahiti. Most species are medium-sized brownish butterflies with bands of marginal white spots, while some are strikingly irridescent blue/purple. Many of the larger Australasian islands are home to mimetic assemblages of Euploea spp.. Larval host plants include the families Apocynaceae, Asclepiadaceae and Moraceae.
