Our framed Prepona butterflies are popular amongst collectors. Showcasing the upper side of their wings, this species exhibits distinctive iridescent blue markings. In contrast, the underside (not seen in our frames) is a much more subtle pale greyish or brown.

Adult Prepona butterflies are strong fliers – soaring high in rainforest canopies. They have typical wingspans of 3.5 inches (approximately 8.8 cm)

Our framed Prepona butterfly specimens have been sourced responsibly. Find out more about where we source our butterflies and moths from.

How to display

This frame comes with a single brass hanging hook which can be screwed into the rear of the frame, allowing you to hang it on a wall.

Alternatively, the frame is deep enough to stand freely by itself on a shelf.

Where to display

To preserve the colours of your specimen, it's best not to display your frame in direct sunlight. You should also avoid areas of high moisture, such as bathrooms and kitchens.

About our frames

All of our frames are handmade and feature mitred joints. The hardwood we use is of a very dark brown colour, with visible woodgrain.

All of our frames use real glass.

Postage and packaging

All frames are bubble wrapped before posting. As an independent, family-run business, we try to re-use as much packaging as possible to limit our impact on the environment. Postage and packaging is charged at £4.99 per order.
