A smaller species of Morpho from South America, this on has a unique blue irridesence that makes it special from other Morpho species.
This amazing species 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.
