Abisara echerius Stoll, 1790 – Plum Judy
Subspecies in India:
(1) Abisara echerius prunosa Moore, 1879 – Lankan Plum Judy
(2) Abisara echerius paionea Fruhstorfer, 1914 – Karen Plum Judy
Contrary to popular belief, A. echerius is found in India only in the southern Western Ghats (ssp. prunosa) and the Naga, Manipur and Mizo Hills (ssp. paionea), whereas A. bifasciata suffusa is widely distributed from the Western Ghats to the Vindhya and Satpuda Hills, the Eastern Ghats, Himalaya and NE India up to the Garo and Khasi Hills. See a note under A. bifasciata for further clarification.
