The Madagascan sunset moth is a species of moth, not a butterfly. A day-flying moth, but a moth nonetheless that is unsurprisingly found in Madagascar. It is incredibly popular and sought after because of the rainbow of colours visible on its wings. The green-banded urania is another stunning moth found on the other side of the world in Peru. This moth is known to aggregate on urine tainted ground to collect the minerals from it.
