The Helenor Blue Morpho is undoubtedly the most famous and appreciated butterfly in butterfly houses. It only lives in tropical America. Its iridescent blue colour is an important message that allows males to recognise other males, leading to conflicts for females. In addition, the colouration probably plays an important role in the choice of a mating partner, for both females and males. The males are a little smaller and more colourful than the females.
