PREPONA BUTTERFLY - PREPONA LICOMEDES
Meyer’s Butterfly, Prepona licomedes, is a species of butterfly within the Nymphalidae family found in rainforest habitats throughout much of South America including Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, and Peru. Members of this species are robust and stout, but also agile and powerful fliers. In addition to rotting fruit and sap, these butterflies also tend to feed on dung and carrion. The topsides of their wings are brown with a thick, dazzling turquoise-blue band running longitudinally down the middle of each; the undersides are simple, lighter shades of brown.
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 [email protected] and we will do our best to accommodate you!
