Commander (Moduza procris)

Common butterfliy flies from lowlands to about 1500m. However it is much common in the hills from 500m to 1200m especially near rivers and streams in wooded areas and on jungle paths. Commander takes part in migrations and it is extreamly swift in plight. It occasionally settles on wet patches on the road to absorb minerals. Its larva feeds on Mussenda/Wel-but-sarana(Mussaenda frondosa), Rawan idala/Wana Idala (Wendlandia bicuspidata) and Cinchona spp. of the family Rubiaceae
