Blue Mormon-An Elegant Butterfly of Bangladesh: Syeda Tasnim Jannat

I was walking along a country road of Gazipur recently on a holiday.
The road passed through dense vegetation comprising jackfruit,mango,jujube,Indian olive,tamarind,amloki,various citrus species, Sal ,Bajna,acacia and many domestic and wild plants.The area was a part of Sal forest and characterized by red soil.
While enjoying the lush green beauty of the landscape
I saw a large butterfly flying over my head.The butterfly soon settled on a leaf of Sal tree in front of me.It sat on the leaf and spread its wings.I was astonished to see the beauty of the elegant butterfly.Its wings were mixture of blue,black and white.I took my
Samsung mobile phone and captured its images.
I checked the images of the butterfly in the net and could identify it.It was Blue Mormon.Its scientific name is Papilio polymnestor.The butterfly species was declared as the State Butterfly of Maharashtra of India.Authorities of India has chosen
a really beautiful butterfly for one of its states.
Later,I saw Blue Mormon butterfly on Ixora and rose flowers.Its beauty enhanced with its presence on various flowers and foliage.

I also saw a number of photos of the butterfly in Flickr posted by some butterfly enthusiasts of Bangladesh.The photos showed the butterfly sipping nectar from Ixora flowers indicating its preference of the host plant.The butterfly was photographed from Dhaka and Barisal in the said photos.

Torben Bjorn Larsen cited the species in Butterflies of Bangladesh : An Annotated Checklist.He mentioned that he saw the species in Dhaka Botanical Garden,Jahangir Nagar University Campus,Savar and in Sylhet.

The occurrence of the elegant Blue Mormon in wide areas and in many locations of Bangladesh is a vital proof that it is a native species of our country.

Let us hail this elegant butterfly and enjoy its divine beauty.

I have posted some links of photographs and videos of Blue Mormon from Flickr and Youtube.They will help you identify the elegant butterfly in the environment.
