SPECIES : Idea leuconoe princesa
Idea leuconoe, also known as the paper kite butterfly, rice paper butterfly or large tree nymph is a butterfly known especially for its presence in butterfly houses and live butterfly expositions. It has a wingspan of 12 to 14 cm. The paper kite is of Southeast Asian origin, but can also be found in Northern Australia and Southern Taiwan.
Larvae feed on Parsonsia species, so both the butterfly and larva are poisonous.
The paper kite butterfly’s forewings and hindwings are translucent silvery white with black spots, similar to the Idea lynceus.
