Idea leuconoe - Paper Kite

Commonly known as the Paper Kite, Idea leuconoe are native to densely forested regions in South China, South Japan, Malaya, Java, Borneo, and the Philippines. These butterflies have weak, fluttery flight interspersed with gliding due to the high ratio of their wing-size to body-size. Their wings are generally a light yellow, brown, or off-white, with dark brown or black veins and spots.
