Blushing Phantom Butterfly - Cithaerias pireta

THE SCIENCE:

Cithaerias pireta is a species of butterfly within the Satyrinae family. However, unlike most other Satyrines (commonly known as “Browns”), C. merolina’s wings are mostly transparent, with a blushy patch of pink on each hindwing. Members of this species are generally weak fliers and also tend to avoid bright sunlight; they prefer moist, shaded habitats and are found in the largest numbers throughout the lower levels of the Peruvian Amazon. The rarely-seen adults may be spotted very low to the ground at dusk, feeding on rotting fruit and vegetation.

THE STORY:

This blushy species makes quite the adorable specimen, and is an equally adorable way to decorate any space! 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 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 fabrication@theevolutionstore.com and we will do our best to accommodate you!
