The remarkable transparent butterfly has names in different language.

  • Glasswing ( English name)

  • Espejitos (Spanish name)

The literal meaning of Spanish name is “little mirror.” The only way that you can tell that this butterfly has wings at all are the borders because they are of a dark shade. Were it not for these borders, the glasswing would be more or less invisible to the human eye.

The wings of the glasswing have a single refractive index, so do not scatter light, and results in making the wings transparent. It is a delicate looking species like other butterflies. Its wings are no less strong than those of other species. Its native habitat it is quite common.
