Tagiades insularis grandis Evans, 1937 

I. Bampton reared this subspecies from a pupa collected on Dioscorea  sp., Grande Comoro Island , 10 Jan 2010. 

The emerged pupa is similar to that of T. i. insularis  ( Figure 12View FIGURE 12), but the white markings on the wings are less developed in this individual.
