Morpho rhetenor cacica - A mosaic gynandromorph

Morpho rhetenor cacica - Mosaic Gynandromorph

Here is shown a very fine example of a mosaic gynandromorph of a male Morpho rhetenor cacica. This was a wild caught specimen that came into our possession a few years ago.
The left side of this butterfly is all male, while the right side shows a good deal of the the females colouration. This is a very striking example as the male and female of the species are so different.
