SPECIES Morpho catenaria
FRAME 20x20xD5cm Made from recycled products.
DESCRIPTION Crisp white coloured wings with a hint of pale blue on this stunning South American morpho. There are 29 species of Morpho. Their iridescent colouring is a result of the microscopic scales on the wings which reflect light. The underside is a dull brownish colour usually with various eyespots which deter predators when wings are closed and also provide great camouflage when perched on trees or bushes.
