Both species are swift, high fliers. Eggs are laid singly on the host plant, Cassia.Cymothoe sangaris, the Blood Red Glider, is found in tropical forests in Central Africa. Aside from its arresting colouration it is one of the only solid red butterflies out of the 20,000 or so butterfly species in the world its fame mostly comes from the fact that due to sexual dimorphism it is often very difficult to be sure of its species. While the males of C. Sangaris generally look alike, the same cannot be said for the females, which have been described under upwards of 20 different species due to their variety.
The adults spend most of their time in the forest canopy but also seek out sunlit spots between the trees and feed on decaying vegetation on the forest floor. These butterflies have been expertly prepared by hand to museum standards, and are mounted on conservation-grade foam in a hand-made, beautifully crafted case backed with Italian decorative paper. Absolutely ideal for wedding presents, Christmas and birthday presents, home decoration.
