NEW HELICONIUS!
It is very difficult to obtain new HELICONIIDAE and the ones we offer from Ecuador are large, unusual and of extraordinary colors as well as being rare and difficult to obtain. Among them are the large HECUBA CHOARINA, the rare and unusually striped HECALESIA EXIMIUS, the beautiful blue MELPOMONE STICHELI and ERATO CYRBIA with piano key hindwings; the black and white ELEUCHIA ELEUSINUS and the most beautiful orange and black and white spotted HECALE QUITALENA. Among South American species we have MORPHO ALEXANDROVNA, ASTEROPE LEPRIEURI, DOXOCOPA LAVINIA, ANTEOS CLORINDE and many others.
We also have a few of the rare CALLICORE ATACAMA, PIERELLA HELVINA PACIFICA and EPIPHILE ERIOPIS ERIOPIS. as well as the spectacular ELZUNIA HUMBOLDTI CASSANDRA.
We are happy to offer some of the most beautiful and colorful butterflies very often in demand for artwork. These include PAPILIO ULYSSES ULYSSES, the Peacock INACHUS IO, the all orange APPIAS NERO, the oriental Monarch DANAUS CHRYSIPPUS, the splendid DELIAS HYPARETE and PASITHOE as well the giant orange tip HEBOMOIA GLAUCIPPE CELEBENSIS. New stock of ATTACUS ATLAS and a few ATTACUS LORQUINI together with MIMATHYMA SCHRENCKII, the white and yellow CATOPSILIA SCYLLA round up the butterflies and moths.
Among the insects we offer a gorgeous blue dragonfly, the jewel like Buprestid CHRYSOCHROA SAUNDERSII, the violin beetle MORMOLYCE PHYLLODES, two rhinoceros beetles; CHALCOSOMA ATLAS and EUPATORUS GRACILICORNIS and two brilliant cicadas, the blue TOSENA SPLENDIDA and the yellow and black BECQUARTINA ELECTRA
We are able to once again offer some gorgeous HELICONIUS HYBRIDS which sold out so rapidly last time. These are certainly among the most beautiful of all the Heliconiidae. Also some interesting SATURNIDAE such as, large AUTOMERIS, etc.
