Phoebis argante – the Apricot Sulphur
15x15x6cm frame (red)
This wonderful bright yellow butterfly has a large distribution, from the southern United States down to Brazil. It is a swift, high flier. Eggs are laid singly on the host plant, Cassia.
This butterfly has been prepared in the UK to museum standards and is displayed in a deep handmade shadowbox frame, mounted on white conservation-grade foam. The back of the frame is covered in really special Italian decorative paper, with a brass hook for hanging it on the wall (but it also stands perfectly on a mantlepiece or a table). It is completely sealed inside the frame and will last for generations.
