Morphidae / Blue Morphos & Others

For many years the naming of Morpho butterfly species has been surrounded in confusion and controversy. The goal of TBC is to provide a great resource for anyone to buy dried butterflies and be as scientifically accurate as possible. For this reason, when we identify Morphos we offer for sale, we use the wonderful series of Morpho reference books created and authored by Patrick Blandin. Blandin is the first to create a comprehensive revision of Morphos since the historical works of Eugène Le Moult and Pierre Réal over a half-century ago! Older names and other synonyms will be noted in descriptions and we will do our best to illustrate and describe variations, forms and more. (FYI-*As morpho abdomens contain oil which can permanently stain/damage the wings, abdomens are carefully removed by our suppliers around the world, this is barely noticeable and does not affect the value of a specimen)

Danaidae / Tigers & Crows

'Rice Paper' butterflies are stunning in collections!  Their large wings are translucent white attractively patterned in smokey black and gray.  They glide through rainforests slowly making easy targets for predators to see.  But like the Monarch butterfly, they are distasteful because of the food plants they eat as caterpillars and birds and insects recognize their wings which give warning about their nasty taste - in the same way some bees advertize with their black and yellow striped warning colors.
