The Conjoined Silverline, a new butterfly species discovered in Karnataka’s Western Ghats, represents a significant find in the field of biodiversity and conservation. Identified by a team of researchers from the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), this species, the size of a one-rupee coin, was first seen in 2008 but remained unclassified until extensive studies conducted in 2021. Noted for its distinctive wing patterns with fused spots and shiny silver lines, it underscores the rich biodiversity of the Western Ghats and the importance of continued research in these regions.
