Artist's Description

Hecale Longwing – Heliconius hecale zuleika
Heliconius Butterfly Calendar
Heliconius comprise a colorful and widespread brush-footed butterfly genus distributed throughout the tropical and subtropical regions of the New World. These butterflies utilize Passion flower plants as their larval food source and rely on bright wing color patterns to signal their distastefulness to potential predators (aposematism). Heliconius butterflies benefit from mimicking other unpalatable species of butterfly because doing so spreads the cost of educating predators.
