Use of Butterfly English Names on this forum -

Off late I have been asked by many confused amateurs about lengthy common English names that are being used here. They were not sure whether it means the same species that they know for last couple of years or a different one as 2 - 3 prefixes were added. So, from now onwards to reduce the confusion among amateurs, any deviation from previously used English names are not allowed in this group.

Links of http://www.ifoundbutterflies.net/ website is not allowed on this forum as it deviates from previously used English names in Indian butterfly books and generally accepted scientific rankings.

Three deviations from above two rules will see you out of the group.

If your link is removed for some reason, please mail [email protected] to learn more. Unless you have your messaging disabled on Facebook, you will be informed on why your post is deleted from the group.

Thank you for understanding and cooperation.
