Blue Morpho Menelaus from South America -- Morpho menelaus
A bit more petite than the Giant Blue Morpho, and with a deeper blue.
Another amazing Morpho species which uses structural color in the wing scale geometry to create a stunning iridescent blue. Adjusting the viewing angle also changes the shade of blue just slightly. The wing scale reflects back these blue wavelengths of light, while absorbing other wavelengths.
Two gorgeous real Morpho Menelaus wings, from one specimen for symmetry. Choose forewing, hindwing, or cut teardrop.
Wings have a gorgeous epoxy resin finish on each side.
Choice of .925 sterling silver ear wires, or hypoallergenic Niobium ear wires. (Niobium are less shiny, but contain no nickel. See picture)
