They feed mainly on decomposing fruit, but they also occasionally settle on the ground to imbibe mineralized moisture, and are also attracted to sweat.
This species is confined to primary rainforest.
After mating the female lays individual eggs on the leaves of the host plant. The caterpillar feeds on the host plant until it forms its chrysalis.
This butterfly can be found in flight year round.
The butterflies are commonly known as Crackers due to the ability of the males of several species to produce a sound similar to the crackling of bacon in a frying pan.
