Banded King Shoemaker - Archaeoprepona demophoon by 

Archaeoprepona demophoon
Archaeoprepona is a genus of Neotropical charaxine butterflies in the family Nymphalidae, native to Mexico, Central America, northern South America and the Caribbean. The underside of their wings is pale brownish, while the upperside is dark with a distinct bright blue band.
Most taxa were described before Fruhstorfer coined the genus Archaeoprepona in 1916, and were therefore originally placed in other genera. This include the type species of the genus, Archaeoprepona demophon, first described as Papilio demophon by Linnaeus. Even after the description of the genus Archaeoprepona, the members have commonly been included in Prepona instead.

My greatest passion in photography is to capture the wonderful Butterfly. I hope you will enjoy my photos of Butterflies as much I do to watch them and to catch their beauty with my photographs. My camera is a Canon EOS 350D with a Canon Close-Up lens 250D. Thank you so much for your visit, the kind comments, the great support and the Love for Butterflies!
Butterfly Kisses, Johanna
