Artist's Description

This was a beautiful White Tree Nymph at Lancaster’s Butterfly House, in Williamson Park today. The butterfly house is the only one in the NW and well worth a visit.

The Butterfly House is Lancaster’s tropical oasis where exotic butterflies flutter elegantly around their leafy surroundings.
The former Palm House has recently been refurbished and resembles a tropical rain forest with flowers, trees, vines, foliage and colourful butterflies. Come along and walk amongst some of the world’s most beautiful species, including brilliant swallowtails, and cleverly camouflaged Owl butterflies within a natural habitat. The pupae of new butterflies can be seen in a special display case and you may even see a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis. In the stream that flows around the forest you may also spot a koi carp.

The Malabar Tree Nymph (Idea malabarica) is a large butterfly found in peninsular India that belongs to the danaid group of the family Nymphalidae. It is found in forest clearings and above the forest canopy.
