    Butterfly - Taxidermy and hunting trophy

    Lepidoptera are an order of insects commonly known as butterflies. In the adult state, they are characterised by three pairs of legs (like all insects) and two pairs of wings covered with scales of very different colours depending on the species (more than 200,000 recorded to date). Butterflies lay eggs which give rise to caterpillars. The caterpillars then transform into chrysalises and the butterfly emerges.

    Butterfly taxidermy is the practice of preparing, mounting and preserving butterfly specimens in a lifelike state for exhibition or collection purposes. Here is some information about butterfly taxidermy:

  • Assembly: Once captured, butterflies are prepared by carefully removing soft body parts such as viscera, while preserving the wings and body. The wings can be reinforced with thin wire or special supports to hold them in the desired position.

  • Conservation: Different conservation methods can be used to preserve butterflies. The most common method is to secure them to a support with entomological pins. Some taxidermists also use special display boxes, where the butterflies are mounted on pins and protected by glass or clear plastic.

  • Preservation: To ensure the longevity of the specimens, it is important to protect them from moisture, direct sunlight and insect pests. Appropriate chemicals, such as mothballs, can be used to keep pests away.
