Giant Striped Morpho - 8x6 Riker Mount
Giant Striped Morpho (Morpho deidamia neoptolemus)
- Wingspan: 4 3/4 - 5 1/4 inches
- Origin: South America
This gorgeous Morpho has two thick iridescent blue stripes that run along both the fore and hindwings. On the tips of the wings are lovely silver spots, which the female has more of. The male of the species has much broader stripes than the female, but both shimmer like sunlit water. Also, the black color on the female can be more of a black-brown, which compliments the blue beautifully. Both are equally stunning!
