Description

The Vindula butterfly is one of the most familiar species in the Asian region of the world. The male and female of this species differ – with only the males exhibiting dazzling orangey-brown coloured wings. Females are similar to the bright orange males in patternation but have a duller, grey colouration and a broad white marking extending across both wings.

Males are usually seen singularly, or in couples basking in the sunshine. In the sun, they will keep their wings spread out. However, in very hot conditions they will hold them upright. Females are seen much less commonly, but can sometimes be found feeding on flowering bushes such as Rhododendrons.

Adult Vindula butterflies have typical wingspans ranging between 2.5 to 3.2 inches (6.3 to 8.1cm).

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

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.
