I remember Claude saying what prices these would cost nowadays, I'm glad I'm not just starting out. I think the problem with obtaining this species is it's location, not a place I would recommend visiting for an entomological holiday.
Like any Apatura with the yellow bands coming through. From my time in Germany I knew the describor of this species in person. Günter Ebert. When I remember it correctly it is from 1971. A sample of the species was brought to him by a local entomologist and it was unlike anything he had seen before.
