Artist's Description

Cracker butterfly – Hamadryas amphinome
Cracker butterflies (also called Calico butterflies) are a neotropical group of medium-sized brush-footed butterfly species of the genus Hamadryas. They acquired their common name due to the unusual way that males produce a “cracking” sound as part of their territorial displays. The most comprehensive work about their ecology and behavior is that of Monge-Najera et al.
