Red Lacewing Butterfly

Red Lacewing Butterfly
Cethosia biblis

Found from North India to the Philippines, the name comes from the patterning on its underwing.

Not a very good photograph as it wouldn't keep its wings still while open, but I love the rich red colouring.

Family: Nymphalidae
Genus: Cethosia
Latin name: Cethosia biblis
Common name: Red Lacewing Butterfly
