Malay Lacewing {cethosia hypsea hypsina} on lantana at Kipandi Butterfly Park.

~Lightbox~ My butterfly set

A beautiful butterfly with wings of orange and red surrounded by broad black borders. The wings are scalloped, giving the hind-wings its sawtooth-like edges. The undersides are orange and red with white fasciae and black spots forming an intricate pattern. (There are quite a number of subspecies with different patterns and colours.)
