Common lascar (Pantoporia hordonia)

Common lascar (Pantoporia hordonia) is an animal species in Nymphalidae, a butterfly-shaped insect, medium sized, black and orange with a striking pattern, two pairs of wings, 3.8-4.4 cm stretch, black antennae, head and chest, grayish palpi, ochraceous belly, has two forms for the rainy season and the dry season.

P. hordonia in the rainy season has an upperside with a wide discoid line, the anterior protrudes twice and the crest extends. The forewing has fused posterior discal spots, forming a short irregular oblique wide band. The anterior spots are fused and oblique from the ribs. The postdiscal obscure gray transverse and the orange transverse subterminal line are very slender and indistinct.

Hindwing has a subbasal wide transverse band and a much narrower postdiscal band that curves inward at the ends. The terminal margin is black crossed by the darker black underline.

The underside is chestnut brown, covered with a short, slender, transverse brown striae along the edge of an orange mark similar to the mark on the upper side but wider, paler and indistinct.

Forewing has a pale transverse postdiscal and orange subterminal stripe from the upper side replaced by a narrow postdiscal lilacine band defined by a slightly crenulated chestnut-brown stripe on each side and a pale subterminal line.

Hindwing has a base filled with lilacine. The subbasal and postdiscal bands are bounded by a narrow lilacine band, the orange-yellow color of the postdiscal band is largely obscured by transverse brown. Terminal edge with a wide, indistinct, tortuous lilacine line.

The form during the dry season is similar to that of the rainy season, but has a much wider range of features. The upperside of the forewing has a postdiscal line and a clear, orange-yellow underline, a pale underside with more fuzzy marks. Short brown streak across many specimens covering almost the entire surface of the wing.

Larvae have two forms. The first form has a large head and is triangular in shape, the sections of the body increase and then decrease gradually. The front of the fourth segment generally slopes downward at an angle to the rest of the body and with a dark greenish brown undercoat. The rest is just a greenish gray color and crossed by diagonal dark bands. Eat lots of Acacia and Albizzia.

The second form has hair on the head and dorsal point replaced by a long spine-like process. The butterfly produced from larvae with spines has a male of a lighter color and feeds on other than acasia.
