The most elegant butterfly in Japan! Idea leuconoe

Idea leuconoe

Idea leuconoe is known as the largest butterfly in Japan that inhabit in Nansei Islands. Called as "lady in a southern island", it can be as large as 10cm or more with its wings open.
We plant Parsonsia laevigata (Compositae) in the Ocean Expo Park that larval of Idea leuconoe eat. When they grow and become butterfly, they come flying for the honey of the flower in the Tropical Dream Center. You will surely be fascinated by the elegance of the figure flying lightly with large wings.
