3 different butterflies mimic the unpalatable Parantica:
Calinaga sudassana (left and centre) and Chilasa agestor (right) mimic Parantica sita. The smaller Chilasa epycides mimics Parantica aglea.
This species flies only for a couple of months between February and March in the mountain provinces of the North Thailand. It’s a mime of Parantica sita.
