It's a daytime family Nimphalidae butterfly, with a wingspan of about 7.5 cm, and its most prominent feature is a blue metallic band having males and walking in the middle top of the wings. Females have a white band but, beginning in an orange stain on the front of the forewings. Their caterpillars feed almost exclusively on the leaves of a tree called tala (Celtis tala and Celtis spinosa), which used as host plant during the larval stage.
