Calinaga sudassana

The "Orange Freak" is a beautiful and large Nymphalidae flying only during the end of the winter in North Thailand, then disappearing for the rest of the year. The species mimics the Danaidae Parantica sita, that is unpalatable for the predators. During the video an uninvited but beautiful guest: Graphium eurous, the Sixbar Swordtail, another winter mountain species. Doi Inthanon, February 2020
