Common Pierrot Butterflies are usually found around the region of Nepal. This butterfly was spotted in Pokhara but took some time to have it be patient enough to have a photo taken. This butterfly falls under the BEAKS, family LIBYTHEIDAE and has four legs for the male and six for the female. The reason they are called BEAKS is because of the palpi (between the antenna) which is elongated and looks like a beak.
