The butterfly species Cymothoe hobarti is indigenous to the tropical forests of Tanzania and neighbouring countries such as Uganda, Kenya and Congo. Just like in previous years, this series, which is sold out annually, presents itself with a new country of issue.

The butterfly’s remarkable red colouring is a wonderful addition to the collection and the glimmer effect on its body shows an attractive feature. The flower is deliberately kept in subdued colours to let the extraordinary smartminting high relief take the stage.
