Madagascar Sunset Moth

Regular price $65.00

Chrysiridia rhipheus, or Urania ripheus, is a day-flying moth of the family Uraniidae. It is considered one of the most impressive and appealing-looking lepidopterans. 

It's very colorful, though the iridescent parts of the wings do not have pigment; rather the colors originate from optical interference.

The specimen is encased in a 5” x 5” frame.
