BLUE FROSTED BANNER BUTTERFLY - CATONEPHELE NUMILIA
The Blue-Frosted Banner butterfly, Catonephele numilia, is a species of butterfly in the Nymphalidae family found throughout Central and South America. It’s a sexually dimorphic species, with males being black with six orange dots on the dorsal surface and females being mostly black with a light band of yellow across the center of the forewings, along with small patches of blue and dark brown on both the fore- and hindwings. Males are more often seen than females, as is the case with most butterfly species, and they can usually be seen flying close to the ground and feeding on rotting fruit.
