AEGINA NUMBERWING BUTTERFLY - CALLICORE LYCA AEGINA

THE SCIENCE:

The Aegina Numberwing butterfly, Callicore lyca aegina, is one of a number of remarkable butterfly species in the genus Callicore- all of which bear beautiful, intricate patterns on the undersides of their wings (especially on the hindwings). The topside of this butterfly’s wings are dark, with striking patches of orange and blue rippling toward the margins. Found throughout rainforest habitats from southern Mexico down to Peru, this is a very unusual and prized specimen from the family Nymphalidae.

THE STORY:

C. lyca aegina is one of our most stunning species; we offer both specimens mounted ventrally, and specimens mounted dorsally. Our all-natural, intact specimens (no fake parts here!) are all of first-rate quality, delicately prepared, mounted, and framed with double-glass glazing in our very own fabrication studio in Upstate New York. We model our frames from solid fine ashwood, and they’re available in both a matte-black, and a natural finish. Because of high demand, some of our framed insects may not immediately be in stock, and may take up to an extra week to ship due to production. Please do contact us at (212) 343-1114 ext. 402, or at fabrication@theevolutionstore.com, with any questions regarding availability and/or custom orders.
