Solomon Islands Country in Oceania

Solomon Islands is a sovereign state consisting of six major islands and over 900 smaller islands in Oceania lying to the east of Papua New Guinea and northwest of Vanuatu and covering a land area of 28,400 square kilometres (11,000 sq mi). The country's capital, Honiara, is located on the island of Guadalcanal. The country takes its name from the Solomon Islands archipelago, which is a collection of Melanesian islands that also includes the North Solomon Islands, but excludes outlying islands, such as Rennell and Bellona, and the Santa Cruz Islands.

It has a wingspan of 21 mm. The forewings are reddish-orange with a purple-blackish apical patch occupying rather more than half the wing, the anterior edge irregular. The hindwings are reddish-orange with the apical half blackish, the division between these irregular. [1]
