The remarkable Idea butterflies can be recognised by their large size, their black and white colouration, and their particularly slow and graceful flight. This is a poisonous species, and for this reason it is avoided by predators who recognize it by its colouration. This exhibitionist species wants to be noticed, so flies slowly and shows its black and white colouration even when backlit. This colour combination is an indication of poisonousness in Asian forests.
