This is a real natural butterfly specimen!

Specie- Batesia Hypochlora ♂
Origin - South America
Condition - Excellent, may have only very minor flaws. (Please refer to pictures ).
Comments - Intensely colored butterfly with a bold distinctive pattern on the underside and lovely dark blue iridescence on the upperside. Very beautiful.

It has been professionally spread and it is ready for your favorite shadow box frame or display case ( there are many commercially available ).
You can also use it for scrapbooking, photography and other crafts or you may even want to start your very own butterfly collection!
The wings are sometimes used for jewerly or artworks, but keep in mind that they are very delicate and extremely fragile.

Specimen in the pictures is the EXACT one you will receive. No need for re-hydration and tedious spreading procedures, it is ready for you to use or display. The last photo shows the underside of the specimen and the measurement ( wingspan ). Please refer to the images provided for condition.
