Morpho aega butterfly scales

Ref: 80200219

Butterfly wing scales. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of scales from the underside of a morpho butterfly wing (Morpho aega). In contrast to the metalic iridescent scales of the upper surface of Morpho butterflies, these scales are a dull brown derived from coloured pigments and not by structural interference.
