The Brassolini are a neotropical tribe which includes the very large "owl butterflies" (Caligo), as well as a number of other striking species. Many of them are crepuscular, exhibiting rapid flight that almost makes them look like bats. They are often seen in the blue hour before dusk, or on cloudy days. Going to the rotten fruit, carrion and excrement. The larvae of brassolines feed on monocots, and some species are pests of palms.
