The Danaid Eggfly is an excellent example of sexual diamorphism. The male is black with white oval spots. The female is a mimic of the unpalatable Plain Tiger in appearance and behavior. It can be distinguished from the Plain Tiger by the single black spot on its hind wing as opposed to three or four spots on the Plain Tiger and by comparing the pattern of their wing margins.
