Collecting trip: Taiwan, Republic of China, 2016

The majority of butterflies shown here are to be found within a 30 min commute from downtown Taipei and the half a kilometer high (!!) Taipei 101 tower. These specimens were collected in just 4 days of driving around in a rental car, under rather poor weather conditions due to an approaching typhoon. There is a reason why Formosa is referred to as "Kingdom of Butterflies"!
