|North Mindanao, Philippines; 8/78|
Widespread in the Philippines and generally very common, it survives
destruction of primary forest and as such is not likely in any danger at
the moment. Variations in the amount of yellow on the hindwing occur on
different islands, the extreme form being entirely black (dohertyi
from Talaut) or mostly so (plateni from
Palawan) - these two forms are usuallly treated as separate species, though
I tend to feel they belong with rhadamanthus.
