Comments I found those in new growth jungle and in the area between the jungle and the beach. At some places they were so numerous, that I had to stop myself collecting them.
On one small bush we found 11 specimen.
Curiously they were absent in other places
under similar conditions.
As you can see on the pictures they are gorgeous.
I have about 34 of them.
One female I found was covered with mold.
I kept it separately and released it later on, but not after it laid 6 eggs.
They are laying a lot of eggs.
