as pointed out by AuntDot Thank You :)
The Glasswing (Greta oto) is a brush-footed butterfly, and is a member of the subfamily Danainae. Its wings are translucent, with a wingspan of 5.6 to 6.1 cm. Its most common English name is glasswing, indeed, the tissue between the veins of its wings looks like glass, as it lacks the coloured scales found in other butterflies. The opaque borders of its wings are dark brown sometimes tinted with red or orange, and its body is dark in color.
