Greta oto is a brush-footed butterfly,citation needed] and is a member of the clearwing clade. Its wingspan is 2.2 to 2.4 in (5.6 to 6.1 cm).
Adults range from Mexico through Panama. G. oto visits common flowers like lantana, but prefers to lay its eggs on plants of the tropical nightshade genus Cestrum. The red and purple striped caterpillars feed on these toxic plants and store the alkaloids in their tissues, making them distasteful to predators such as birds.citation needed] They retain their toxicity in adulthood.citation needed] The same alkaloids that make them poisonous also are converted into pheromones by the males, which use them to attract females.citation needed]
G. oto adults also exhibit a number of interesting behaviors, such as long migrations and lekking among males.
That is awesome!
God’s itty bitty windows?
Or you could wear them on your face as a pair of spectacles!
