Buy Dead Butterflies

Butterflies tend to be brightly colored, fly by day and have clubbed antennae. The majority of specimens we offer are frozen and therefore fresher than what you can buy anywhere else. A lesser portion of our specimens are dried in the conventional way. Please take time to review the "status" field on the purchasing pages for full details on their state of preservation as it may factor into how easy the specimens will be for you to work with.
