Double Glass Framed Diaethria Clymena Butterfly
Diaethria clymena, the Cramer's eighty-eight, is a species of butterfly of the family Nymphalidae. It is found from Mexico to Peru and Brazil. It was discovered to science by Pieter Cramer, in a fascicle of Deuitlandsche Kapellen, 1775. The wingspan is about 30–40 millimetres.
While they are extremely beautiful, they have some less than savory attractions:
Both sexes are attracted to rotting fruit (fun!). The males are strongly attracted to urine-soaked sand, and also imbibe dissolved minerals from damp soil, road surfaces and rock faces (even more fun!). They are very active butterflies, easily disturbed, and rarely settle for more than a few seconds at a time in one spot, but they will return repeatedly to the same patch of ground.
