Agrias claudina lugens (Staudinger, 1886). Agrias amydon boliviensis (Fruhstorfer, 1895) Cites Appendix III and Agrias amydon ferdinandi (Fruhstorfer, 1895) males are rare and very difficult to see. We saw the most by using excrement which was used as a bait. Their colors are amazing to see in the sun, making it almost hurt your eyes when it sits quietly and opens up the wings upperside.

Agrias is wery popular among collectors and is considered the finest among the New World of butterflies. Carlos from Caranavi so a A. amydon boliviensis female lay egs on wild coca, Erythroxylum species, otherwise we know little about their lifestyles.

In the tribe Agrias there are 5 species and belong to the family Charaxini if body and wings are wery strong built. There is also in the family Charaxini; tribe as Anaeini (89) and Preponini (16) in South America from South Mexico to North Argentina.

Agrias claudina lugens og Agrias amydon boliviensis hanner er sjældne og svære at få at se. Vi var heldige en gang, rent tilfældigt at der sad en claudina han en sen eftermiddag på skovvejen på vej hjem. Ellers så vi de fleste ved hjælp af ekskrementer som der blev brugt som lokning. Deres farver er fantastiske at se i solen, det gøre nærmest ondt i øjnene når den sidder der roligt og åbner op for oversiden.

Agrias er meget eftertragtet blandt samlere, og regnes for det ypperste blandt den nye verdens sommerfugle. Carlos fra Caranavi så en gang for 10 år siden en A. amydon hun lægge æg på Vild Koka, som han samlede ind, og fik gennemført dem til voksen sommerfugl, som han skrev en artikel om. Ellers ved man intet om deres levevis.

I tribe Agrias findes der 5 arter, og de hører til Slægten Charaxini, som hvis kroppe er meget kraftige. Der findes også i slægten Charaxini; tribe som Anaeini (89) og Preponini  (16) i Sydamerika.

How do I get close to this beautiful butterfly in Agrias family? After having eaten a good big T-bone that is well marinated with garlic, chili, pepper, salt and lots of lime for dinner the evening before.

Can you next morning after a good strong cup of Caranavi coffee put the biggest smelly cake on locality. This cake overlaps with several days old piss that is completely dark yellow from a bottle. And it does not take many minutes before the first butterflies fly around the smelly cake.
