Quote: "View Baronia brevicornis is in the family sailing alone; he even highlighted in a separate subfamily. What an honor? Because this butterfly - a kind of" living fossil ", the last representative of an ancestral group of sailboats, extinct millions of years ago, one Butterflies of the oldest in the world! "
