Calypso White Butterfly - Belenois calypso (Underside)

Scientific Name:
Belenois calypso
Central African Republic
Shipping Restrictions:



Belenois calypso, the Caper White Butterfly, is a species of butterfly widely distributed throughout the forests and savannas of Sub-Saharan Africa. Members of this species are a striking bright white, dotted with black and grey along the perimeter of the wing, and feature subtle splashes of yellow on the underwings. Adult females are more often seen in flight than males, who spend much of their day “puddling” in small groups close to the ground.


The family Pieridae, of which this species is a member, is known for its simple-yet-elegant color scheme and patterning. The Caper White is no exception, and is a lovely addition to 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 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!
