Nathan's Notes

It is always fun we when have the opportunity to exhibit a new species in the Christina Reiman Butterfly Wing.  Recently we received 21 pupae of the Gold-edged Owl-Butterfly (Caligo uranus).  This is probably not the pose you are going to find this butterfly making in the Butterfly Wing, they prefer to sit with their wings closed.  Since Owl Butterflies are more dawn and dusk fliers, look for this butterfly to be sitting on the plants.
