The 88 Butterfly - Diaethria clymena - Underside

Scientific Name:
Diaethria clymena
Shipping Restrictions:



The 88 Butterfly, Diaethria clymena, is a species of butterfly within the Nymphalidae family. It’s well known for, and its common name references, the astoundingly numeric black and white patterns on the undersides of its hindwings. The topsides are velvety black with diagonal stripes of metallic blue and/or green. All species in the genus Diaethria boast these underwing numeric patterns, varying in color and shape (even between individuals of the same species), and it can be fascinating to compare the variations. This species is found in rainforest and cloud-forest habitats across much of Central and South America. Wingspans range between 1.2 and 1.6 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. 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.
