As Viridian has given us a free choice this week I've decided to show a set I recently acquired.
|Malaysia - Butterflies|
Selangor is one of the thirteen states of Malaysia. It's difficult to read the names of the butterflies, even with a magnifying glass. However I have made out the one at the bottom left.
Precis orithya wallacei is named after Alfred Wallace. Thanks to wikipedia I can add:
Alfred Russel Wallace, OM FRS (8 January 1823 – 7 November 1913) was a British naturalist, explorer, geographer, anthropologist and biologist. He is best known for independently conceiving the theory of evolution through natural selection, which prompted Charles Darwin to publish his own ideas in On the Origin of the Species
