Butterflies are ecologically important due to the role they play in the food chain of a forest ecosystem. They also greatly affect biodiversity, since most butterflies are pollinators of flowering plants. India’s Western Ghats play home to many species of butterfly.

The Common Emigrant Butterfly isdistributed across India up to 4,000 meters. Found in all types of habitat, this pretty, pale lepidopteran prefers gardens, agricultural fields, scrub and open forest.
