Morpho Melacheilus -Male
Morpho Melacheilus -Male -Ecuador -(5.5 in wingspan).
This Morpho definitely has a different color blue than any of the others I've seen.
The color is close to that of a Morpho Absoloni, except it is lighter and brighter than an Absoloni, but not as iridescent. That is, the Malacheilus has a FLAT light bright metallic blue color almost as though the wings were sprayed with a light bright metallic blue paint.
