The Blue Diadem lives in the tropical forests of central Africa and has approximately 23 related species. This specific species is very territorial and tends to hang out on a favorite perch and is often seen chasing away other butterflies who fly within their area. Males habitually perch with wings half-open on bushes or saplings along the edges of forest paths and await passing females. Both sexes feed from teak flowers.
Our taxidermy butterfly is framed with UV blocking glass to preserve colors and details.
