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 12 View FIGURE 12 ), but the white markings on the wings are less developed in this individual.
