Great purple or Japanese emperor is a large butterfly of 50–55 mm. It is considered to be the national butterfly of Japan. The male wings are shiny, bluish-purple and beautiful. Inhabits well-maintained thickets all over Japan. It sucks the sap of oak and elm trees and loves the nectar of chestnut and harlequin flowers. It has a high flight ability and flaps powerfully enough that you can hear the sound of its wings when he passes by.
