The butterflies of this genus have transparent wings with distinct red, orange and eye-shaped spots only on a part of the hind wings. With the rose-red color on the hind wings, when flying in the dark jungle, this butterfly species looks like a petal fluttering in the wind, which is really beautiful. Like other butterflies with transparent wings, it is easy to be recognizes as there is no scale on their wings. Their transparent wings can help them hide and avoid attacks from predators.
