This stunning South American butterfly was a favorite butterfly of the Victorian naturalist Charles Darwin and belongs to the Callithea group of butterflies, which Darwin once described as “the most richly colored of all butterflies.” Also called Leprieur’s glory and a member of the Nymphalidae family, with its first pair of legs are not used for walking, but function as chemoreceptors for tasting and smelling. The metallic sage/green underside is even more impressive.
