Common mime (Papilo clytia). This butterfly has two forms. This is the dissimilar form. The other being the darker and nominate form, clytia.
Both forms are great examples of Batesian mimicry were a non-toxic species will mimic the appearance of a poisonous one to protect itself against predators. In this case the non-poisonous dissimilis form of the common mime mimics the appearance of the toxic blue tiger butterfly.
