Hypolimnas is a widespread Old World tropical genus, with several very widely-distributed species. Several species are markedly sexually dimorphic, with the females mimicking Danaus chrysippus
Hypolimnas bolina is also of interest as one of a few butterfly species that are known to be infected with male-killing Wolbachia (Dyson et al. 2002; Mitsuhashi et a. 2004).
