Copaxa rufinans is one of the more common Copaxa species and flies from Mexico throughout Central America, south via Colombia to Ecuador. It's a very variable species, which has very light and very dark brown forms. The pink on the upper side, especially the forewings, is something all forms have in common and is what separates rufinans from other Copaxa species. They are not very large. The wingspan is somewhere between ten and eleven centimeter. This species broods continuously as long as the temperature does not drop below a normal living room temperature. The pupal stage can be very short. I had cocoons already hatching after only two weeks.
