Seascape Butterfly - 4x3 Riker Mount

  • $ 27

Seascape Butterfly (Asterope markii)
Wingspan: 2 1/4 inches
The upperside of the Seascape Butterfly has a remarkable blend of bright orange, extremely iridescent bright blue, and a deep iridescent purple that does not show up in photos and is usually visible under bright light. The entire black part pictured above is actually the deep purple. The underside has a bright orange, an odd green, and an interesting pattern. Highly recommended.  This may also be known as or possibly confused with Callithea davisi, Asterope hewitoni.
Origin: S. America
