Crimson-spotted Forester

Euphaedra themis

Description:

The genus Euphaedra comprises of a yet to be discerned number of large and very beautiful forest-dwelling butterflies, all found on the African continent. Both sexes fly close to the ground, elegantly weaving their way through the forest undergrowth. They do so with great adeptness, and are very graceful in flight. The butterflies are strongly attracted to fallen fruits, and will spend half an hour or longer feeding at them if undisturbed.

Habitat:

As with all Euphaedra species, this butterfly is an inhabitant of tropical rainforest, and is found at altitudes between sea level and about 1000m.
