Nymphalidae (admirals, anglewings, brush-footed butterflies, checker-spots, crescent-spots, fritillaries, mourningclocks, and purples)

Wikipedia Abstract

Nymphalidae is the largest family of butterflies with about 6,000 species distributed throughout most of the world. These are usually medium sized to large butterflies. Most species 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. Many species are brightly colored and include popular species such as the emperors, admirals, tortoiseshells, and fritillaries.
