Large Tree Nymph Butterfly - Idea leuconoe

Scientific Name:
Idea leuconoe
Shipping Restrictions:



The butterflies in the genus Idea are sometimes called Paper Butterflies or Tree Nymphs, because of their delicate, translucent wings. They boast a distinctive, graphic patterned appearance, veined and spotted with black markings, as well as a corresponding level of toxicity and unpleasant taste- all features that help to deter predators. They have a characteristic gentle, unrushed gait during flight, implicative of negligible fear of predators. Idea leuconoe is a large (4.7-6.1 inches) fairly common species across Southeast Asia, ranging from Myanmar to Malaysia, to the Philippines, and can most often be found in lowland rainforest areas basking in the sun with their wings outstretched.


These large, lovely butterflies are often included in live butterfly exhibitions since their size and striking coloration make them easy to spot. A specimen of your very own is only a few clicks away! 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!
