A variety of specimens from the Callicore tribe, mounted to show either the upper- or under-wings. The Callicore tribe is commonly referred to as Numberwings, because the patterns on the underside hindwings resemble numbers or letters of the alphabet. These beautiful jewel-like butterflies are found in wet tropical rainforest areas of Venezuela, Guyana, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay and the upper Amazonian region of Brazil. They are usually encountered as solitary males and have a rapid and powerful flight over short distances. These butterflies often visit river beaches to imbibe dissolved minerals.
On hot sunny days they habitually land on the arms, legs and backs of humans to imbibe sweat. These butterflies have been expertly prepared by hand to museum standards, and are mounted on conservation-grade foam in a hand-made, beautifully crafted case backed with Italian decorative paper. Absolutely ideal for wedding presents, Christmas and birthday presents, home decoration Please note that the display should be kept out of direct sunlight as the colour comes from pigmentation of the scales, rather than refraction, and it will naturally fade if it spends too long in the sun. If you have any queries, or would like to request a different specimen, please get in touch!
