Red-eyed Underleaf (Teratophthalma maenades) is distributed from Colombia to Peru. This species occurs in rainforest and cloudforest habitats at elevations between about 800-1800m. The butterflies are never seen in open sunlit areas, instead preferring the darkness of the forest understorey. The adults are secretive by nature, spending long periods resting under the leaves of low growing vegetation, with wings spread open.
