Chrysalis is such a fascinating thing!!! This is sci-fi in real life. I happened to noticed this Chrysalis near a small stream flowing through the mountains and I learnt that this species prefer high mountain valleys at an elevation ranging 500m-1400m. Also, learnt that this species form colonies and hence I could see many such Chrysalis and more than a dozen of adults at this spot. I am going to upload the image of the adult I managed to capture in my next post.

''Acraea issoria'', the yellow coster, is a small, leathery-winged butterfly. This species of the subgenus and the tawny coster ''terpsicore'') with its sister species ''moluccana'') and ''meyeri'') of the nominotypical subgenus, are the only Asiatic representatives of the predominantly African subfamily Acraeinae.

According to George Talbot the race ''anomala'' is found in the western Himalayas while the nominate form is from the eastern Himalayas.
