Urania leilus. Urania leilus, the green-banded urania, is a day-flying moth of the Uraniidae family. Diurnally active, they enjoy basking in the sun alongside a potpourri of tropical butterflies. It is found in tropical South America east of the Andes, including Suriname, French Guiana, east Colombia, Venezuela, east Ecuador, Brazil, north Bolivia, east Peru, and Trinidad. Lots of colorful friends to choose from in those locations. Could it be possible that the Urania leilus is actually a social butterfly in disguise?
