Ypthima burmana Evans, 1923 - Large-eyed Three-ring

Subspecies in India

No subspecies are listed under this species. It has in the past been treated as a subspecies of either Ypthima asterope (Klug, 1832) – Common Three-ring or Ypthima norma (Westwood, 1851). Evans (1932) and Talbot (1947) mentioned distribution only from N. Myanmar, but d'Abrera (1985) mentioned it from Manipur as well. Recently there are sporadic records from NE India of Ypthima similar in appearance to that of this species, some of which closely match the type specimen and other historical materials. However, the Indian distribution of this species needs to be verified with specimens and a closer inspection.
