Rajah Brooke Butterfly

Trogonoptera brookiana

Description:

It has distinctive black and electric-green markings, which are more prominent in the males, they have a red head and another strip of red afterward, which is called a collar. This gives them an appearance of big red lips!

Habitat:

Spotted this guy in a low scrubby bush in Mulu National Park in Malaysia. There was actually trips to see hundreds of these butter flys at local caves. I only found out about these trips on my return.
