Unlike most moths which are nocturnal, this one can be found enjoying the bright warmth of the tropical South Asian day. The moths bright colors are a warning to predators. It gets its toxicity from its nectar and food plant, Lotus corniculatus, which provides glucosides that the moth uses to create hydrogen cyanide, a toxic poison to some animals. Also available displays the front and back of the moth.
