Western Blue-Banded Forester
Identification:
Wingspan: 75-85 mm. The ground colour of the wings is dark chocolate brown with a metallic-blue stripe on the hindwing. The usual “Euphaedra” band in the forewing apex usually is missing, if appears it is narrow, dark yellow. The underwing is light olive-green with well defined discal spots, differing with this from that of E. harpalyce. Females in the Bebearia fantasina group are similar, but they are considerably smaller and the apex of the forewing is narrower. The subapical yellow band is usually well defined, and they are having a white rectangular spot on the costa of hindwing underside.
Ecology and habitat:
It is a butterfly of wet forests of Ghana. It is not very rare, but usually scarcer than E. harpalyce with which it flies. It is a shade loving species which rarely be seen in open areas, though it is fond of and can be trapped with fermented fruits.
Distribution in Ghana:
It can be found in the forest belt of Ghana but it also penetrates the Volta Region.
Distribution:
The range covers most forested areas from Guinea to Togo
