This South America butterfly has a metallic deep blue sheen on the hindwings, and a broad arc of orange or red on the forewings. Species in the butterfly group Callicore are commonly called eighty-eights or numberwings in reference to the characteristic patterns on the hindwing undersides. These butterflies are usually encountered as solitary individuals. The underside (ventral side) of this butterfly is just as stunning.
