The Giant Orange Tip Hebomoia glaucippe  Tropical Asia.

A most impressive butterfly, very large, which shows up from a distance. The male has the brighter colouring. Females have more black marking.

Glaucippe breeds well in captivity, laying on Spider Plant Cleome whose seeds are often available from seedsmen. The caterpillar has markings that suggest the head of a serpent, which must give it substantial protection.
