Greta Oto's Glass Butterfly (Interesting article)

in #butterfly5 years ago (edited)

The glass butterfly Greta Oto is considered one of the most beautiful and unusual butterflies in the world and belongs to the nymphalid family. A glass butterfly butterfly lives in tropical forests in the territory from Mexico to Argentina.

The main feature of the glass butterfly is an absolutely transparent fabric on the wings, which was the reason for this name. Large populations of butterflies grow due to the absence of those who want to eat it - due to the high content of toxins in the tissues that accumulate even at the caterpillar stage

Greta Oto moths play an important role in pollination of many plants, feeding on their nectar and at the same time carrying pollen. The caterpillars feed exclusively on leaves of one type of plant from the genus Cestrum
