Wingspan: 2 1/4 inches
The upperside of the Seascape Butterfly (Asterope hewitsoni / Callithea davisi) has a remarkable blend of bright orange, extremely iridescent bright blue, and a deep iridescent purple that does not show up in photos and is usually visible under bright light. The entire black part pictured is actually the deep purple. The underside has a bright orange, an odd green, and an interesting pattern.
