Thanks RJ ... however, always just passed through there on the way to the Park; I'd think I'd need to stay in Magoebaskloof for a few days and then look when they fly. :thumbs_up:

All South African species (bar one) of this genus have two tails. They are brightly coloured in shades of red, orange, or blue. Aggressively territorial, they are capable of pushing other butterflies off their food with serrated edges on the forewings. They usually inhabit the upper canopy of forests or treetops of savannah. Which genus?
