Dorsal view of a delicate, ivory-colored butterfly. Like monarchs, and other Danainae, these butterflies are thought to taste bad to predators such as birds due to the butterfly's food source.
Seen at The Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory. Native to Southeast Asia, but it is also found in Northern Australia and Southern Taiwan. Prefers mangroves and rainforests.
