Description

The name “morpho” is thought to originate from the fact that these butterflies appear to change shape as they’re flying.  The blue color is not a pigment but an iridescence.  This group of butterflies have long been a source of fascination to humans with native populations of the Amazon associating this butterfly with a long list of superstitious beliefs, and considered both wish granters or evil spirits.
