About:

Great Orange Tip Butterfly mounted with it's Latin and Common name in a solid wood box frame.

Great orange tips are named after the striking orange patches on the upper edges of their wings. They belong to the large Pieridae family of white, yellow and orange species.

A recent discovery showed that the species has a powerful peptide toxin in its wings called glacontryphan-M. In butterflies, it is thought this toxin wards off a wide range of predators by producing a bad taste - one more weapon in their arsenal.

Measurements:

Frame: 6 x 6 inch
