Common Nawab is a large and very powerful butterfly with massive thoraxes and narrow pointed forewings. Common Nawab is uncommon in many areas but is seen around forest canopies. These are very beautiful butterflies that can fly around the tree tops; some comes down to the forest floor for food supplies and in search of host plants.
