Cyrestis cocles

Description:

Cyrestis cocles belongs to the familyNymohalidae in the sub-family Cyrestinae. Sexes are similar with the female a bit lighter with more rounded wings. Both sexes have a gentle but deceptively rapid gliding flight. They will venture out of the forest to bask on gravel roads on overcast days, but in sunny weather usually remain in the shade.

Habitat:

The habitat consists of primary and secondary forest at elevations between sea level and about 800 metres, and is normally encountered along wide forest trails, or in quarries or other cleared areas, often close to human habitations. I saw this one on a path near Than To Waterfall in thick tropical forest.
