Purple Milkweed Butterfly 

Last week I made some posts about butterfly migration and posted a video on the migration of the Monarch Butterfly to and from Mexico. Here is a short video about the migration of the Purple Milkweed Butterfly in Taiwan.

The video is contributed by Jerry and is from the Taiwan Forestry Bureau whose site provides links to recreation resources and to detailed information on the Taiwan National Trail Network.

Milkweed butterflies are also known as Crow butterflies and the migrating purple crow butterflies are classified as members of the Euploea genus (Euploeini).

I have updated this post with more information at Butterflies in Taiwan.
