Menelaus Blue Morpho (Morpho menelaus)

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

The wings of the Morpho menelaus are often used in jewelry and art displays because of their almost pure-metallic luster! Often mistaken for its larger counterpart, the two main differences between Morpho menelaus and Morpho didius are their size and the strength of the metallic finish on their wings. Morpho menelaus is quite a bit smaller than Morpho didius; however, the metallic brilliance of Morpho menelaus is more prominent! You can't go wrong with any Morpho!
