The blue morpho butterfly belongs to the arthropoda group. There are 29 species of the morpho butterfly and 150 subspecies in which the blue morpho is just one. They are found in South America, Mexico and Central America.
Morphos are a sub-family of beautiful iridescent-blue butterflies that inhabit the tropical rainforests of South America. One of the most popular morphos, the Blue Morpho, (Morpho Menelaus,) is my favorite butterfly. They are an extremely beautiful shade of aqua blue.
