Idea leuconoe chersonesia
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I would like to share wit you another shot from the 'Jardin des Papillons' in Grevenmacher, which I can recommend to all fans of exotic butterflies, as it is probably the only chance of seeing them in Luxembourg.|
You can check the details on the website: http://www.papillons.lu/
Idea leuconoe chersonesia (Mangrove Tree Nymph) is a black and white butterfly like the other species of the genus Idea, but the marginal and submarginal spots are conjoined to form an irregular black band, and the wing bases are yellow-tinted. Like the other Idea species, the butterfly glides gracefully amongst the treetops and floats like a piece of paper. The butterfly is believed to be distasteful to predators.
