Morpho rhetenor helena

Wingspan: 5 - 5 1/2 inches

Status: Ready For Us To Build

Riker Mount w/ hanger on back (8" x 6") - $84.00, Product #069RS - 4 - 4.5 inch wingspan - These top quality specimens are a little smaller than the specimens below which are 5+ inches. Still the same stunning color and pattern. Add To Cart
Riker Mount w/ hanger on back (8" x 6") - $69.00, Product #069R - GOOD QUALITY - We only purchase "top quality" specimens, however these specimens that we received have extremely minor issues them that make them less than top quality in our opinion. There are no wing tears, generally a fine scratch(s) that is really only noticable at a very close range (about a foot or so away). Stunning color and iridescence, this is a great way to get a helena for a lot less. The iridescence makes the flaws very difficult to see. These are definitely worthy of gift giving. Of course we have a full return policy if you're disappointed, but you won't be! Note that top quality specimens aren't 100% flawless, there's no such thing. Any flaws on top quality specimens are so minor that they are deemed insignificant. Prebuilt: Ready to Ship! Add To Cart

    The Morpho rhetenor helena is often called the most beautiful butterfly in the world and for good reason. It's huge, has rich, extremely metallic blue coloring (rhetenors are the most metallic of all morphos), and a stunning white pattern. On the specimens we received the white appears as though it's drowning in a sea of blue, it kind of looks submerged. Its wings feel a bit thicker and more substantional than the other morphos whose wings are notoriously thin and delicate. This thickness probably helps its tremendous coloring. If you want to own a butterfly that makes people say "wow!", this is it; if your budget allows for it. If not, the other metallic blue morphos are spectacular too. We do recommend the helena if you have to choose between it and the Morpho cypris due to its superior size and slightly superior metallic color. This butterfly is of limited availability. Origin: South America.

    This butterfly fits just fine in the 8 x 7 case, however the 10 x 10 offers a more spacious look, see picture below of a 10 x 10 case.
