  • $\begingroup$ The image of the species on the left looks quite identical and accurate.And also,it’s written on Wikipedia that the species is found in Nepal which is the country lying just above the border our state.Thanks. $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 19, 2018 at 15:05
  • $\begingroup$ Those two butterflies are the same species. The one on the left is a male. The one on the right is the female. $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 19, 2018 at 15:08
