Glass butterfly Greta Oto is considered one of the most beautiful and unusual butterflies in the world and belongs to the nymphalid family. The glass butterfly lives in large numbers in tropical forests from Mexico to Argentina.
The main feature of the glass butterfly is the absolutely transparent fabric on the wings, which is the reason for this name. Large populations of butterflies grow due to the absence of those who want to feast on it - due to the high content of toxins in the tissues, which accumulate even at the caterpillar stage
Greta Oto butterflies play an important role in pollination of many plants, feeding on their nectar and at the same time carrying pollen. Caterpillars feed exclusively on leaves of one type of plant from the genus Cestrum.
