Peacock Butterfly - Aglais io

Scientific Name:
Inachis io
Shipping Restrictions:



Peacock Butterfly, Aglais io, is a colorful species of butterfly commonly found across much of Europe and temperate Asia (up to 8,200 feet above sea level), as far east as Japan. Its common name references the black, blue, and yellow eyespots on its wings (reminiscent of those on a male peacock’s tail feathers), widely thought to be an anti-predator mechanism. The rest of the wings’ topsides are a rusty red, while the undersides are a cryptic dark-brown and/or black. Members of this species have wingspans between about 2 and 2.2 inches.


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!
