Dione Juno, or The Silver-Spotted Flambeau, is found in Central and South America, from Mexico to Paraguay. The dorsal wing surface is a brilliant reddish- orange edged and veined with black. The wing underside is light reddish-brown and patterned with silvery-white streaks and spots. Each ventral forewing has a large light orange patch. Unlike other Heliconian species, the Silver-Spotted Flambeau does not feed on pollen. The adults fly quickly and erratically.
