This is a forest butterfly that colonize farmlands better than most of the other Cymothoe. Another shot by Ojonugwa Ekpah. Males are usually found in sunspots in forest where they perch and attack other passing butterflies (Larsen 2005). The female is a mimic of a day-flying geometrid moth in the genus Otroeda. Both sexes are attracted to fallen fruits. This species was photographed in Oban Hills in January, 2021.
