Morpho Rhetenor Helena - 8x6 Riker Mount
Helena Morpho (Morpho rhetenor helena)
- Wingspan: 5 - 5 1/2 inches
- Origin: South America
The Helena Morpho is often cited as the most beautiful butterfly in the world, and for good reason! Its huge wings sport a gorgeous metallic blue (the most metallic of all Morphos) and a stunning white "U" shaped pattern. Its wings also feel a bit thicker and more substantial than the other Morphos, whose wings are notoriously thin and delicate. This thickness probably helps its tremendous coloring. If you are in search of a butterfly that will impress your guests for years to come, the Helena Morpho is for you!
