Kallimoides rumiaNiklas Wahlberg and Andrew V. Z. Brower
The sole member of its genus, from tropical Africa. K. rumia was formerly placed in the tropical Asian Kallima based on superficial resemblance (the ventral surfaces of both genera have modifications of their wing patterns suggesting the venation of dead leaves), but this appears to be due to convergent evolution.
