Morpho aurora

Regular price $120.00

The Morpho aurora is a butterfly species native to South America, particularly found in the rainforests of Peru. It is renowned for its striking iridescent blue wings, which can reflect light, creating a shimmering effect. The vibrant coloration is due to microscopic scales on the wings that reflect light rather than pigment. This butterfly is admired for its beauty and is often featured in art and collections.

There are over 80 species of morpho butterflies mostly found in South America as well as Mexico and Central America. The name “morpho” is thought to originate from the fact that these butterflies appear to change shape as they’re flying.

This specimen is encased in a 6x6" frame.
