Description

This species is solitary and a fast flyer. It flies high above and forages on the trees (e.g., Creeper blooms on Bamboo). However, occasionally it is attracted to bright flowers of plants on the ground as well (e.g., dwarf red Ixora). It flutters in a hurry while sipping nectar.

It is distinguished due to its colour which is shiny fluorescent blue or green depending on the angle of observation. The magnificent colours are due to scales in interior of its wings. Also there are spots in the bottom of its hind wings similar to eye spots.

The exterior of wings is brownish-black with patterns similar to eye-spots. Perhaps the only protection for this species is self-mimicry through the eye-spots as regards to its morphology, considering its bright peacock colours and its fast flight.

Distribution : Lower Bengal; Forested parts of Central and Southern India (including Kerala); Sri Lanka.

These are old pictures taken at Indian Naval Academy Ezhimala. Today this butterfly has been crowned as state butterfly of Kerala, one of Indian States. One pic is outdoor and rest all are inside indoor stadium. The change in angle gives various colour shades. Nature's amazing creation.
