Where do your specimens come from?

Why are some butterflies and moths mounted verso or face down?
Most butterflies have completely different colors and markings on the inside and outside of their wings. When you look at a butterfly or moth what you see on one side may be completely different on the other side. About 3/4 of all butterflies and moths that we sell are available either face up or verso and some butterflies and moths only have interesting markings or colors on the outside (verso) so we only offer them that way.
