Tawny Coster

Acraea terpsicore (Acraea violae)

Family: Nymphalidae
Subfamily: Heliconiinae
Genus: Acraea
Species: violae
Common Name: Tawny Coster
This butterfly can be found in: Vietnam Malaysia Singapore Thailand

The Tawny coster is a common butterfly in Vietnam and is found in forests as well as in open country. It is a slow flier and flies close to the ground.

The butterflies of this subfamily are characterised by a perfectly flat hindwing and by having the cells of both wings closed by tubular veins. Their behaviour is sluggish, and, like the Danainae, they have a leathery body and are tenacious of life. They frequently exhibit Mullerian mimicry and serve as models for Batesian mimics from other families.
