D. 9 January 2012; Finally I have seen the rare Prepona praeneste buckleyana.
This is probably the first time ever it has been filmed and photographed in the wild!
This species is protected by CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered
Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) which is an international agreement between governments.
Its aim is to ensure that international trade in specimen of wild animals and plants
does not threaten their survival.
