Graellsia isabellae ♀

Graellsia isabellae ♀

One of the rarest and most coveted butterfly species.  The moth and larva are as exotic as any tropical animal. The larvae change dramatically as they grow, starting with a precise imitation of pine twigs, which they rest in by day, then changing to patterns of green, black and white as they venture out among the foliage. Finally they take on an intricate pattern, adding red to a criptic camouflage that renders them almost impossible to spot against the light in the pine forest. The larvae make a cocoon in the mosses and leaf litter on the ground. They are used to a warm Spanish climate.

  • While we try our best to depict the actual colors & design of our butterflies & other insect artworks on our website, we cannot guarantee that the insect & its artwork design you receive will be identical in color, shade or size as the one you see on our website.
  • Our frames are not air-sealed. This will allow you to repair your butterfly, beetle or other insect should it become necessary. Since our insects specimens have been professionally preserved and dried, we guarantee that your display will last and look wonderful for a very long time. Therefore, air sealing is merely a personal choice and not a necessity.  This also allows for inside frame cleaning from time to time such as interior glass due to organic out gassing over time and is natural.
  • We may substitute a different size frameset (in same color) depending on variability aspects such as insect size and product availability.
  • Most artworks are shipped within a week of ordering but may require a few days longer to prepare some insects.
  • Due to some insects having extremely fragile antennae, we may remove them preemptively because they rarely ship successfully.
