This is one of our more common butterflies and its caterpillar is shown here feeding on a young Parsonsia straminea vine which is probably its main native host. However it has taken a liking to many of our introduced plants and is frequently seen on Oleanders and is often called the Oleander butterfly. (January 2008)
