Leaf Butterfly Kallima inachus or paralekta

The Leaf Butterfly is one of the most amazing examples of camouflage in the world. The upperside is brilliantly coloured with iridescent blue and orange. Once the wings are closed you see a perfect brown leaf, faithful to the design with a central stem, veins and even the shape of a leaf. This is one of the wonders of all the insect kingdom and so educational to show to adults and children alike.

We will send which ever species is available at the time. Both species are very similar indeed. The pupa is also well camouflaged with brown speckles and spikes like a seed head.
