Postcopulatory position of mated pair.
Drawing by Harry McVay (from photograph).
From an article on postcopulatory behavior in Neoxabea bipunctata (Walker 1978).

The male is gripping the leaf with his fore and middle legs; the female is gripping the male's hindwings; the spermatophore that the male has attached to the female is visible at the tip of her abdomen.
