English Abstract

Based on breeding in laboratory and surveying in field, the biological and ecological characteristics of Agehana elwesi (Leech, 1889), were studied. It is an endemic and nationally endangered butterfly species in China, having two generations per year in South China and overwinters as pupa. Its larva has five instars which need 58-69 days to be mature, and the overwintering stage lasts 6-7 months. April to May and June to August are the time when they become adults. The biological and ecological characters were also described in details.
