| The glasswing butterfly, pictured in this gold
frame, is also commonly called little greasy or
small greasy. The wings of the citherias aurorina
butterfly are clear except for the rear portion
of the hind wings, which are a stunning rosy-red
when seen under good light. They can be found at
floor-level in primary rainforests, where
they appear to be almost invisible, even in flight!
The rose clearwing is distributed from Mexico to
Peru and Bolivia.
