The two sides of the beauty of butterflies


Museu Nacional

Museu Nacional
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Order Lepidoptera Nymphalidae. 40 mm wide. Some butterflies are equally beautiful and interesting both on the side of the womb and on the back. A good example is Diaethria clymena janeira, commonly known as butterfly-eighty-eight, because of the drawing of that number that forms on the underside of its wings.
