Violet Daggerwing (Marpesia marcella)

  • Wingspan: 1 3/4 - 2 inches
  • Origin: South America

Although small, the Violet Daggerwing offers a lot in both color and shape! The upper side has wonderful, rich ambers and siennas, but also lively iridescent purple patches on the hind wings. The underside is difficult to describe in terms of pattern, but we believe that it strongly resembles gorgeous, wind-eroded canyon rocks! Two stiletto-like tails are accompanied by two tiny orange tails. Absolutely stunning!
