Orange Palm Dart Butterfly (Cephrenes augiades) is an orange and black Skipper butterfly from 'Hesperiidae' family, with wingspan of 42 mm for male and 46 mm for female. wing profile is triangular when the butterfly is at rest.
this butterfly prefers to lay its eggs on palms with broad segments composing the leaves. the caterpillars make a shelter in the palm leaves and eat the leaves of the food plant. larva is pale green with banded head.

i took this photograph in the Chintamani Kar Bird Sanctuary on the day before yesterday. this one was a bit bigger than the usual ones, could be a female.
