不怕相思苦

只怕你伤痛

怨只怨人在风中

聚散都不由我

 

不怕我孤独

只怕你寂寞

无处说离愁

秋意浓

离人心上秋意浓

一杯酒情绪万种

离别多

叶落的时节离别多

握住你的手放在心头

我要你记得无言的承诺

 

舞秋风

漫天回忆舞秋风

叹一声黯然沉默

不能说

惹泪的话都不能说

紧紧拥着你 永远记得

你曾经为我这样的哭过

The Malay Lacewing (Cethosia hypsea hypsina) belongs to the genus Cethosia, which includes some of the most beautiful butterflies in the region. The upperside of the wings of both the male and female of this species feature a bright orange-red colour with black borders. The outer margins of both wings are serrated, particularly more so on the hindwings, giving the wings a saw-toothed appearance. The intricate 'lace' patterns on the undersides of the wings are likely to have given rise to the origin of its English common name, Lacewing.

 

The Malay Lacewing is described as the commonest species of the genus in Malaysia and Singapore. It is characterised by the pale yellow subapical border on the forewing above. Males tend to fly more energetically than the females. It is essentially a forest butterfly, preferring to stay within the confines of the nature reserves in Singapore, and the forested areas. The Malay Lacewing can often be observed at the flowers of Leea indica, Snakeweed (Stachytarpeta indica), Mile-a-Minute (Mikania cordata), Ixora spp. and Lantana camara. It is always a joy to watch this pretty butterfly flutter amongst the flowering bushes, searching for its favourite nectaring source to feed upon, and flying nonchalantly in a spectacular display of its bright cheerful colours.

 

Females of the Malay Lacewing have a yellowish-white dorsal patch on the forewings above, which is absent in the males. The females also appear a paler orange-red whereas the males sport a darker shade of orange-red on the wings above.

 

The wine-red caterpillars of this species are known to feed on Passifloraceae. The species is distateful to predators.

Malay Lacewing {cethosia hypsea hypsina}

______________________________________________________________________

A beautiful butterfly with wings of orange and red surrounded by broad black borders. The wings are scalloped, giving the hind-wings its sawtooth-like edges. The undersides are orange and red with white fasciae and black spots forming an intricate pattern.

 

This photo was taken at Kipandi Butterfly Park which is 36 km from Kota Kinabalu City and 700m (2,100 feet) above sea level. It shows a lacewing on the lantana. (There are quite a number of subspecies with different patterns and colours.)

Malay Lacewing (Cethosia hypsea hypsina) - Underside, Female

 

A subspecies of Cethosia hypsea found in forested areas and in nature reserves of the Malay Peninsula, from Burma to Singapore.

 

Most probably derives its name from the intricate colourful patterns on its underside; the wing borders are dark coloured and deeply indented with lace-like pattern of white markings.

 

Male specimens possess bright red wings with black borders whilst females have an orange hue in place of the red. In addition, the female has a white spot on each upperside forewing in the orange area. Both sexes have their hindwing edges shaped like the teeth of a saw.

 

Family:Nymphalidae

 

Host Plant: Asclepias curassavica, commonly called Mexican Butterfly Weed, Blood-flower, Scarlet Milkweed or, Tropical Milkweed - an ornamental garden plant and as a source of food for butterflies

This splendid fellow is a Malay Lacewing butterfly (Cethosia hypsea hypsina) which I saw today at RHS Wisley's greenhouse. RHS Wisley is a public garden in England, and during January & February the greenhouse is stocked with butterflies.

 

Above, the forewings are black with a white subapical band beyond the cell; the basal area is orange-red for the male (with the red confined to the base of the wings) and black for the female (with a yellowish-white patch in mid space 1b). The hindwing upperside is entirely orange-red except for the scalloped black distal border. Underneath, the wings are orange-red with white fasciae and are spotted with black, and the forewing cell has several black-edged, pale blue transverse stripes. The wing borders are dark coloured and deeply indented with lace-like pattern of white markings. One distinguishing feature to separate Malay Lacewing from other Cethosia species is the absence of a white submarginal band on the hindwing underside.

Very surprising to see this beautiful butterfly when I just dropped in to take a look at the vegetable garden! Its bright orange and beautiful pattern immediately caught my eyes! This looks almost like the Malay Lacewing with thick black wing border except that it does not have two "eyes" at its forewings. Could it be just a gender differentiation?
