Cethosia penthesilea

Cethosia penthesilea (Orange Lacewing)

Status: not evaluated.

Flautning such stunning markings, I wonder how these guys don't get picked off by preditors in a wing beat.

I shot these in the butterfly house at Kuranda (which is really worth a vistit). In the wild they're found through Asia and the Northern Territory of Australia.
