PAINTED BEAUTY BUTTERFLY - BATESIA HYPOCHLORA
The Neapolitan Butterfly (also known as the Painted Beauty), Batesia hypochlora, boasts an unusual, lovely admixture of dark metallic-blue and brick-red on its topsides, while the undersides mirror the red from the top along with yellow hindwings and yellow-ochre around the edges. Wingspans within this species can reach anywhere between 3.3 and 3.7 inches. It’s found throughout the Upper Amazon forest areas, especially those in Brazil, Ecuador, and Peru. Males are more often encountered in the wild, and females are slightly larger than males- as are the case with many other butterfly species.
B. hypochlora’s visual charm is absolutely contagious; the species more than lives up to its common name, The Painted Beauty. Order a specimen of this beautiful butterfly today!
