Dimitry, what can't you see?) Or you don't know how many Caligo species are in the Nizhny Novgorod Butterfly House?

Nothing here can be seen, the photo sucks.

Any thoughts anyone? olieus or not?

Moved to Caligo sp. so far.

Hm, I wonder why I sent the foreground thing to morpho for anyway since it seems to be the same Caligo... As for undersides, please, go do.

Seems there is a Caligo moth in the background, likely C.olieus since morpho ones have a lower "eye" placed higher and its darker itself. I can add photos of both undersides if needed.
