The Malachite butterfly has large wings that are black and brilliant green or yellow-green on the uppersides and light brown and olive green on the undersides. It is named for the mineral malachite, which is similar in color to the bright green on the butterfly's wings. The wingspread is typically between 3.5 to 4 in. The malachite is found throughout Central and northern South America, where it is one of the most common butterfly species. If you want a very exotic butterfly for release then this is the one for you.
