|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
No common name.
This is a Nymphalid in the tribe Limenitidini.
It is a rarely seen rainforest species found in the Afrotropical regions.
Quite rare in collections.
Tends to stay in canopy but does descend on occasion to feed on rotting fruit.
It is sexually dimorphic but both species show these characteristic submarginal lunules on the upper sides of both wings.
This one photographed in Techiman Forest in Ghana. Note the broken antenna!!

beautiful butterfly and its nice macro shot with nice POV, composition and focus. TFS. well done
Broken antenna, a bit worn around the edges, probably been attacked by a small bird, life is hard. Another unusual African species, very interesting. Sharp details and the white not too overdone with the flash. Thanks again.
Of course I'm no expert in African butterflies but this one is really nice. TFS - good job.
