Clear Wing Butterflies

Cithaerias esmeralda
Cithaerias merolina
Cithaerias pyropina
Haetera piera
These are some examples of clear wing butterflies from South America. I pinned these to a towel and placed a ruler underneath so you could see how clear the non scaled parts of the wings are. These are small and very delicate butterflies.
