Danaid Eggfly (Hypolimnas misippus)

The male has the upperwings dark velvety brownish-black. The forewing has a broad white oval spot between the veins 3 and 7. A smaller spot near the apex is also present. These spots are crossed by the black veins and bordered in iridescent blue that is visible only at certain angles. The hind wing has a larger white spot but the veins crossing it are yellowish and not as prominent as on the forewing. There are some white specks along the tornus and the margin is edged with white and black.
