Hey Bugman,
I once saw a picture of the most gorgeous butterfly on this site. It was black with neon colored blotches on its wings. I think its had neon pink and/or blue.
Can you please tell me the name of this butterfly, its absolutely gorgeous and I wanted to show my girlfriend.

88 Butterfly

Hi Silver,
The very first image we thought of was a photo of a specimen from a vintage insect collection that we posted that was identified as one of the 88 Butterflies in the genus
Callicore.  Here is another image from our archives of the closed winged view of another living member of the genus.  We would suggest that you search our Butterfly archives if that is not the image you recalled.  You can scroll down our home page and click on the butterfly link in the column on the left side of the page.
