This is a strikingly large, impressive and powerful butterfly which very often rests on tree trunks with its wings closed. The black uppersides with white stripe are conspicuous in flight and resemble those of admirals and emperors but there's no confusion possible as the flight patterns are so different  The undersides are also totally different in appearance.
