Active only during the morning on hot days, Agrias claudina spends most of its life high in the canopy of tropical forests, and is rarely observed except when attracted to food along trails and other forest clearings. The adult Agrias claudina feeds on rotting fruits and mammal dung, with the female particularly attracted to rotten fruits and fish (2) (3).
It is unclear which host plant species Agrias claudina lays its eggs upon, but it is likely that it is a flowering plant within the genus Erythroxylum. The eggs are smooth, round and laid one by one underneath the leaves of the foodplant, with up to 100 eggs laid in total. The larvae feed at night and rest on twigs during the day. The chrysalis is suspended from a stem or leaf of the foodplant (2) (3).
