DESCRIPTION  AKA cocaine butterfly. Shimmering aqua and iridescent royal blue on the wings of this beautiful butterfly from the family Nymphalidae. Mostly living in the forest canopy the adults venture down to feed on rotting fruit or decomposing fish. There are many variances in colourations on these gorgeous South American butterflies some say the Gems of the forest. Larvae feed on Erythroxylum (Erythroxylon) which is a genus of tropical flowering plants in. Many of the approximately 200 species of this family of plants contain the tropane alkaloid cocaine. 

Please note colourations may vary slightly from specimen to specimen.

A must for collectors.
