Monkey-puzzle (Rathinda amor)

An uncommon butterfly found in most part of the island up to about 1000m asl. However it is much plentiful at low country forested areas. The larva feeds on buds of Rathmal flowers (Ixora coccinea of family Rubiaceae), Immature leaves of බෝ-කෑර/ගෝ-කෑර [Bo-Kera] (Gomphia serrata) and shoots and flowers of Rat-Beraliya (Hopea sp. of family Dipterocarpaceae).
