Collector's Room SHOP

Welcome to the Collector's Room!
 
We’d like to welcome you to a new addition to The Butterfly Company! In The Collector’s Room, we’ll be offering wonderful one-of-a kind butterflies, moths & insects from around the world. These items will range from “somewhat hard to find,” to very rare, or even impossible to bring into the United States anymore.
 
Most of these will have come from older American collections, or our private stock; previously unavailable to the public. We will try to provide as much information about where each item came from, it’s dates, and the story behind it as possible. And as always, you can rest assured that all of the material here was legally and ethically obtained. *(CITES's information is kept on file for all items that require it)
 
We hope you enjoy!
