Abisara neavei neavei
Family: Lycaenidae; Subfamily: Riodininae Abisara neavei, Neave’s Judy or Neave’s Banded Judy, is a butterfly in the Riodinidae family. A cute little butterfly dancing around from leaf to leaf! It hardly ever stayed still.
The habitat consists of primary and gallery forests, as well as the fringes of submontane forests. I saw this one dancing around on wild vegetation at the edge of a small coffee plantation at the base of a very steep rainforest mountain in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda.
