Sonal Patil and Sujata Magdum

The present study was conducted to understand the wing venations in butterflies belonging to all three families, namely Papilionidae, Nymphalidae and Pieridae from Dang District, Gujarat, India between 2013-2015. Dang District is identified as a hot spot for megadiversity of butterflies. Wings of all the three families Papilionidae, Nymphalidae and Pieridae showed considerable variations in shapes and vein patterns reflecting their specific nature. An interesting observation was done in Delias eucharias belonging to the family Pieridae. This butterfly showed two veins missing, namely second radial R2 and first cubitus Cu1 from forewing.
