Notes: This plant has been reported as a larval host for Borbo cinnara – Rice Swift, Telicota colon – Pale Palm-Dart from Hong Kong, Melanitis leda – Common Evening Brown from East Africa and Mycalesis gotama – Chinese Bushbrown from Taiwan (HOSTS, 2023). It might be used in India, too, but this needs confirmation.
