The chrysiridia riphearia is a Madagascan moth, and unlike most moths, is a day flying moth. The colours on the wings are produced by the conjunction of two optical phenomena, namely optical interference and inter scale reflection. The beautiful colours you see are a combination of the colours reflected by both of these effects!

With this product you will receive a beautifully displayed chrysiridia riphearia inside a frame made of recycled products. It ships inside a cardboard box, also made of recycled products. From moth to moth there may be a slight colour difference. Each specimen is prepared by the Bits and Bugs team of artisans who have over 10 years of experience.

Frame size: 145 x 145 x 50mm

Packaging size: 195 x 190 x 50mm
