Agrias and Prepona

Agrias claudina lugens
Archaeoprepona demophon
Prepona praeneste
Prepona subomphale
Prepona and especially Agrias are cult species. Some people recognize only 5 species of Agrias while others recognize dozens of species, subspecies and forms. I have seen some Agrias offered for sale for $1000, especially females. These butterflies are from South America. They are powerful fliers.
