The report highlights that the butterfly fauna of this area has been poorly studied apart from a collection made by two English researchers in the early 1930s. In 2011 and 2012, this expert team had collected 130 butterfly species and recorded. Among these, 3 species are recorded for the first time from Bhutan: Apostictopterus fuliginosus, Neozephyrus suroia and Euthalia amplifasia.
