Specialist for Morpho wanted

Post by joachim »

Hi all,
I have this morpho from an old collection, no date and no location. The previous contributor is deceased. Can someone help me? Possibly it is M.achilles. Other butterflies in the box are all from Peru, maybe this helps.
Thanks Joachim

It's M. helenor. It's impossible to know the subspecies without locality data.

If it's from Tingo Maria, it's M. helenor lacommei.
