AEGINA NUMBERWING BUTTERFLY - CALLICORE LYCA

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.

Our framed insects are made-to-order. Please allow up to two weeks for your order to be completed. If you need your order sooner than this, please contact us at 212-343-1114 x401 or [email protected] and we will do our best to accommodate you!
