This is a particularly beautiful one with its brilliant orange underside colouration, very distinctive markings, and extraordinarily long and twisted tails. The upperside wings are blackish brown, with broken white markings in the distal area of the hindwings.

Habitat:

Adults can be sighted rather frequently along forest paths in wet rainforest areas, forest fringe or gaps, with the adults sunbathing or flitting from perch to perch in the vicinity of its host plant.
