It is of the order Leptidopterae, which includes butterflies and moths and the family Nymphalidae. The peacock butterfly has bright red-orange wings that feature black eyespots with blue-purple flecks. They are so named for the eyespots that resemble the tail of a peacock. The butterfly has a wingspan of between 2 1/4 and 2 1/2 inches. Female peacock butterflies are slightly larger than males. The eyespots on the butterfly's wings provide camouflage and are thus a defense against predators.

Male peacock butterflies can be found in sunny locations where they will chase after females in an attempt to mate.
