126. Leptosia nina nina (The Psyche)

Number: 126
Family: Pieriidae
Sub-Family: Pieriinae
Species: Leptosia nina nina (Fabricius, 1793)
Common name(s): The Psyche, The Wandering Psyche, The Wandering Snowflake
Photography location: Cuc Phuong N.P. (Ninh Binh Prov.)

The genus Leptosia comprises 9 species, all found in Africa, except for L. lignea which is endemic to Sulawesi and L. nina which ranges from India to Australia.

Until now, I only saw Leptosia nina one time, at Cuc Phuong N.P., but I miserably failed to get any decent shots. So I have nothing to show here but a voucher specimen below, sorry for that.
