African Monarch - Tabletop Display
African Monarch (Danaus chrysippus alcippus)
Wingspan: 2 - 2 1/2 inches
This butterfly really has a different look than most of the other butterflies we carry. Both sides of the Danaus chrysippus alcippus are beautiful, however we prefer and recommend the underside (above) as it has some nice yellow coloring and excellent detail. Both sides have rich orange and brown coloring. If it looks somewhat like the Monarch butterfly that's because they're both Danaus species.
