Doxocopa laure

Doxocopa laure, common name Silver Emperor, is a species of butterfly of the Nymphalidae family.

Description[edit]

Doxocopa laure has a wingspan reaching about 82 millimetres (3.2 in).

For females, the upperside is dark brown with no iridescence, with a white median band on both wings, ending with a yellow spot at the hindwing leading edge. On both sexes, the underside of the hindwing is greyish with a silver iridescence.
