The maximum number of species were found in the family Nymphalidae (15 species), followed by Pieridae (7 species), Lycaenidae (6 species), Papilionidae (3 species), and Hesperiidae ( 1 species). An analysis of relative abundances revealed that of the 32 species reported, 10 were classed as very common, 18 as common and the remaining 4 species as uncommon.
