Silver Salamis (Salamis duprei)

- Origin: Africa
The Silver Salamis (Clouded Mother of Pearl, Mother of Pearl Butterfly, Pearl Crescent, or Pearl Butterfly) reminds our artist of scratch-off tickets... Not only because of the silver in its wings but because it's a winner! The silver actually has a gorgeous iridescence to it, flashing pale pinks, oranges, yellows, and purples depending on the angle you see it from. The underside of the wings looks like a dried leaf, and you could say this butterfly is on the delicate side just the same. Though, don't be afraid to take a chance on the Silver Salamis!
