Blue Diadem Butterfly - Hypolimnas salmacis

Scientific Name:
Hypolimnas salmacis
Central African Republic
Shipping Restrictions:



Hypolimnas salmacis, the Blue Diadem, is a species of butterfly in the Nymphalidae family. It’s found across much of Sub-Saharan Africa, particularly in secondary forest habitats. Its common name references the stunning midnight blue (amalgamated with black and white) of its wings. Members of this species can reach between 3.1 and 3.5 inches in wingspan.


Like its relative Hypolimnas dexithea (the Tricolor Diadem), H. salmacis’ impressive and unique combination of size, form, and coloration attracts collectors worldwide. And, as sought-after as it is, a specimen of your very own is only a few clicks away. Of course, it also makes a lovely pairing with H. dexithea! 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 and we will do our best to accommodate you!
