  • Taractrocera Butler, 1870 maevius (Fabricius, 1793) – This extraordinary butterfly is only found on Ninepins Group Islands off Sai Kung. It is not recorded in the Mainland China and is far from its distribution range between India and Burma.
  • Pelopidas Walker, 1870 subochraceus (Moore, 1878) barneyi Evans, 1937 – It is a magnificent butterfly with conspicuous sex dimorphism in its early larval stage. It is a sun lover and is only found on barren hillsides in the New Territories.
  • Miletus Hübner, 1819 chinensis (C. Felder) chinensis C. Felder, 1862 – It is a predator on aphids.
  • Ancema Eliot, 1973 ctesia (Hewitson, 1865) agalla ( Fruhstorfer, 1912)  – It is a beautiful hair streak and is difficult to see in the wild. However, it seems to be common on several secluded areas in Hong Kong.
  • Neope Moore, 1866 muirheadii (C. & R. Felder) muirheadii (C. & R. Felder, 1862)  – It is a large Satyrid and lives gregariously when young.
  • Taractrocera Butler, 1870 maevius (Fabricius, 1793) 薇黃弄蝶 – 這極不尋常的蝴蝶,在中國內地並無記錄,遠離它的分佈範圍在印度及緬甸一帶。在香港只可於西貢對開的果洲群島找到。
  • Pelopidas Walker, 1870 subochraceus (Moore, 1878) barneyi Evans, 1937 近赭穀弄蝶 – 這蝴蝶的奧妙之處,在於它們早在幼蟲階段便展現出雌雄異型的特性。它們都愛日光浴,只發現於新界的貧瘠山坡。
  • Miletus Hübner, 1819 chinensis (C. Felder) chinensis C. Felder, 1862 中華雲灰蝶 – 這是以蚜蟲為食的肉食性蝴蝶。
  • Ancema Eliot, 1973 ctesia (Hewitson, 1865) agalla ( Fruhstorfer, 1912) 安灰蝶 – 這美麗的灰蝶較難以在野外看到。然而,這蝴蝶似乎是常見於香港好幾個偏僻的地點。
  • Neope Moore, 1866 muirheadii (C. & R. Felder) muirheadii (C. & R. Felder, 1862) 蒙鏈蔭眼蝶 – 這種大型眼蝶在幼蟲階段有群居的習性。
