Napeocles jucunda, the great blue hook-wing, is a South American butterfly of the family Nymphalidae. The species was first described by Jacob Hübner in 1808. This species inhabits rainforest at the foothills of the eastern Andes, at altitudes between about 400-800 metres above sea level. This large and most magnificent butterfly spends most of its time high in the canopy, but sometimes descends to settle on the lower foliage of trees. To see this species it is usually necessary to find a viewpoint from where the observer can look down onto such foliage from a high vantage point. Fortunately for you, this specimen in a double glass frame means you don't need to do any tree climbing to view these beautiful butterflies.
