Kallima inachus, also known as the Dead Leaf or Orange Oakleaf, is a nymphalid butterfly found in tropical Asia. The species uses mimicry, resembling a dead leaf when it closes its wings, in order to avoid predators.
As this is WP why is there so much in-house terminology that the reader needs to refer to the glossary. As an "encyclopedia" the language needs to be accessible & at least paraphrasing would help. Manytexts (talk) 09:58, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
Not the only creature known as the Dead Leaf Moth.
