The Swordtails are remarkable for the very long, slender and tapering tail on the hindwing, resembling a long sword. They are forest butterflies and are very swift on the wing, with an erratic flight. The ground color of the upperside is white with five short black costal bars. It has a long black tail edged with orange and a white tip.
