Crimson Rose (Pachliopta hector)

English : Crimson Rose
Binomial Name : Pachliopta hector
Crimson Rose lives mainly in Sri Lanka and India. But it's rare to find in central hills of Sri Lanka. Bright color patters of wings indicate the inedibility by predators. It is mimicked by the female of Common mormon. But can be distinguished easily by the red colored abdomen and brightly colored crimson markings of Crimson Rose.
