Red Austria

Red Austria are usually medium-sized to large butterflies. They have a reduced pair of forelegs and many hold their colourful wings flat when resting.

They are also called brush-footed butterflies or four-footed butterflies, because they are known to stand on only four legs while the other two are curled up.
