Hypolimnas bolina – Common Eggfly

Domain: Eukaryota Whittaker & Margulis, 1978eukaryotes, organisms whose cells contain complex structures enclosed within membranes.

Kingdom: Animalia Linnaeus, 1758animals, a major group of multicellular, eukaryotic organisms of the kingdom Animalia or Metazoa. 

Phylum: Arthropoda Latreille, 1829arthropods, invertebrate animals having an exoskeleton (external skeleton), a segmented body, and jointed appendages

Subphylum: Hexapoda Latreille, 1825hexapods, arthropods having a consolidated thorax with three pairs of legs.

Class: Insecta Linnaeus, 1758 insects, hexapods having a chitinous exoskeleton, a three-part body (head, thorax and abdomen), three pairs of jointed legs, compound eyes and one pair of antennae.

Subclass: Pterygota Lang, 1888winged insects, includes insect orders that are secondarily wingless (that is, insect groups whose ancestors once had wings but that have lost them as a result of subsequent evolution).

Infraclass: Neoptera Wulp, 1890 – winged insects that can flex their wings over their abdomens.

Superorder: Endopterygota Sharp, 1898 – also known as Holometabola, are insects which go through distinctive larval, pupal, and adult stages. They undergo a radical metamorphosis, with the larval and adult stages differing considerably in their structure and behaviour. This is called holometabolism, or complete metamorphism.

Order: Lepidoptera Linnaeus, 1758moths and butterflies

Superfamily: Papilionoidea Latreille, 1802true butterflies, having combination of characters:
     - the body is smaller and less moth-like.
     - the wings are larger.
     - the antennae are straight and clubbed (rather than hooked as
       in the skippers).
     - the caterpillars do not spin cocoons to pupate in.
     - the pupae are angular rather than rounded.

Family: Nymphalidae Rafinesque, 1815brush-footed butterflies or four-footed butterflies, the largest family of butterflies with about 6,000 species.

Subfamily: Nymphalinae Swainson, 1827

Genus: Hypolimnas Hübner, [1819]eggflies atau diadems. Eggflies are known for their marked sexual dimorphism and Batesian mimicry of poisonous milkweed butterflies (Danainae), contain approximately 23 species.

Species: Hypolimnas bolina (Linnaeus, 1758)Great Eggfly, Common Eggfly, or Blue Moon Butterfly in New Zealand.

Synonym: Papilio bolina Linnaeus, 1758Hypolimnas parva Aurivillius, 1920Nymphalis jacintha Drury, [1773]
