The sangaris butterfly can be found in Afrotropical regions, mainly in forest surroundings. In particular, they are common in the Guinean Forests of West Africa and the Congolian forests. Commonly referred to as the blood-red glider, its wings are a vibrant, deep red. The species is primarily arboreal, keeping to the forest canopies earlier in the day then descending to lower levels of the forest during the late afternoon to early evening.
These are medium-large to large-sized butterflies and our framed sangaris butterfly examples are towards the smaller side of the scale of species we frame. However, their blood-red colour make them a vivid addition to any collection and their smaller size often appeals to collectors. They make a striking contrast to larger butterflies.
Adult sangaris butterflies have varied wingspans ranging between 40and 70mm.
