This is a medium sized common butterfly which belongs to the group of tigers and is found in almost every part of Sri Lanka. It is seen in both woods and populated areas.
Depend on Helicotropium indicum and Crotalaria retusa as both those plants are a little toxic which assures the protection of these from predators. The larva of this butterfly feeds on Tylophora pauciflora, T. flexuosa and T.multiflora.
