|Euphaea ochracea (Selys, 1859) is
widely distributed in southeast Asia, extending from eastern India to Viet
Nam and south into Peninsular Malaysia. It is native to Bangladesh; India
(Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Darjiling, Manipur, Meghalaya, West Bengal);
Lao People's Democratic Republic; Malaysia (Peninsular Malaysia); Myanmar;
Nepal; Thailand; Viet Nam.
Euphaea ochracea is easily recognised
by its golden brown body and wings. It is normally found at clear forest
stream. The male has red/brown wings (or should that be ochre - probably
where it got its name), which are very distinctive and make it very easy
to recognise. The male likes to perch on branches and twigs over-looking
the river as he waits for prey or a mate.
It is a widespread species that does
not face any known major threats and is therefore assessed by IUCN Red
List as Least Concern.
