Unusual butterfly species reared at Green Hills

This is an aberrant specimen of the Heliconid Eueides isabella. It appeared within our breeding stock in early 2002 and up to now it has maintained itself. Approximately 1 in every 4 butterflies of this species are now of this form. As far as we know this form has not yet been observed in the wild. Neither do we know of a subspecies that is similar. Eueides isabella
Heliconius hecale This specimen of Heliconius hecale zuleika has the coloration of a typical "zuleika" but the pattern of H. h. fornarina. Known as forma café. We have seen this form in the wild but there it is rare. In our breeding stock it is common.

We do not supply papered specimens.
