MADAGASCAR DIADEM BUTTERFLY - HYPOLIMNAS DEXITHEA

THE SCIENCE:

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.

THE STORY:

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 fabrication@theevolutionstore.com and we will do our best to accommodate you!
