The Mother-of-Pearl (Protogoniomorpha parhassus) gets its name from the spectacular colouration of the upper wings. In the dry-season, they appear pearly white with black tips and red eyespots. In the wet-season, the wings take on a more greenish-white with a beautiful violet sheen. It is found in forested areas of Africa.
