DESCRIPTION AKA Rice Paper or The Lucky Butterfly is a large butterfly from the family Danaidae. So named because it feeds on a poisonous host plant which makes it inedible to predators. Tree Nymphs are very large butterflies with wings up to 165mm, characterised by having translucent white wings patterned with black veins, and numerous oval black spots. They are noted for their slow and very graceful flight, which gives them the appearance of white handkerchiefs floating gently on the breeze.
One of our most beautiful specimens and often used by interior designers who favour it's architectual dimensions.
Set in white matt. Very pretty specimen difficult to stock.
