Abstract:The golden kaiserihind, Teinopalpus aureus, is distributed in the most southeastern and somewhat coastal regions near the East China Sea and the South China Sea in Asia, and five sub-species have been reported. It is a Data Deficient (DD) species in the 2004 Red List of Threatened Species of World Conservation Union (IUCN), and in China it is classified as the only category I species of butterfly under the Wild Animal Protection Law in 1989. After description in 1923 by  Mell, there was no field studies on the butterfly for eighty years. During March 2003 to Nov. 2005, we studied the bionomics and morphology of the golden kaiserihind at Dayaoshan in Guangxi Province, China. Based upon the field observations, we recorded that it occurred two generations (partially one generation) annually, and overwintered as pupa. Adult occurred from the last ten-day period of April to the first ten-day period of June in the first generation, and from the first ten-day period of August to the middle ten days of September in the second generation. Female lays a single egg on leaf. Larvae have five instars.endangered butterfly, golden kaiserihind, Teinoplpus aureus, bionomics, morphology
