DescriptionLARGE ASSORTED BUTTERFLY DISPLAY
This beautiful display is comprised of: 18 Phoebis philea, the "orange-barred sulfur" with lovely bright yellow wings exhibiting a delicate orange blush; 24 Panacea prola, with their lovely strong rust red lower wings, and black upper wings with a slash of white highlighting; 24 of the striking Morpho amathonte, distinctive for the brilliant metallic blue of its large wingspan; and 21 Urania leilus, a diurnal moth that is just as beautiful as any butterfly, with stripes of black and electric green, white tails and a splash of electric blue highlight. The horizontal 36 x 48-inch case is glazed on both sides to afford a perfect view of the underside of the specimens' wings, equally dazzling in its array of colors and patterns, and framed in mahogany.
