Charaxes distanti distanti (Honrath)

This is not an uncommon species where it occurs but seems to be seasonal, mostly seen at the warmer months of the year. It shares the same habitats with C. bernadus and are often found puddling together. It can easily be distinguished from the latter by the white band on the costal area on the undersides of the forewings as well a lighter fulvous brown on the wings (see the picture below).

A few Charaxes and Polyuras on a piece of animal dung...
