Jamides virgulatus is a butterfly of the lycaenids or blues family. It is found on Borneo and Palawan.
Taxonomy[edit]
Seki et al. (1991), considered Jamides cunilda synonymous with J. virgulatus and this was followed by Eliot (1992). However, Hirowatari (1986) and (1992) retains J. cunilda for the taxa from Burma to Java and uses J. virgulatus in a strict sense for taxa from Borneo and Palawan.
