Pink-Tipped Satyr Butterfly - Cithaerias merolina

THE SCIENCE:

Cithaerias merolina is a species of butterfly within the Satyrinae family. However, unlike most other Satyrines (commonly known as “Browns”), C. merolina’s wings are mostly transparent, with a blushy patch of pink on each hindwing. Members of this species are generally weak fliers and also tend to avoid bright sunlight; they prefer moist, shaded habitats and are found in the largest numbers throughout the lower levels of the Peruvian Amazon. The rarely-seen adults may be spotted very low to the ground at dusk, feeding on rotting fruit and vegetation.

THE STORY:

This blushy species makes quite the adorable specimen, and is an equally adorable way to decorate any space! 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 inUpstate New York. We model our frames from solid fine ashwood, and they’re available in both a matte-black, and a natural finish. Because of high demand, some of our framed insects may not immediately be in stock, and may take up to an extra week to ship due to production. Please do contact us at (212) 343-1114 ext. 402, or at fabrication@theevolutionstore.com, with any questions regarding availability and/or custom orders.
