Madagascar Diadem Butterfly - Hypolimnas dexithea

Scientific Name:
Hypolimnas dexithea
Shipping Restrictions:



The Madagascar diadem butterfly, Hypolimnas dexithea, is a species of butterfly endemic to Madagascar. The species was first described in 1863 by William Chapman Hewitson, a British naturalist, from a specimen collected from Antananarivo, Madagascar.


H. dexithea is quite the extraordinary lepidopteran species, with an impressive combination of size, form and coloration like none other that attracts collectors worldwide. And, as sought-after as it is, 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!
