Fine Structure of Wing Scales in Chrysozephyrus Ataxus Butterflies

Abstract

We performed scanning electron microscopy observations of the scales on the dorsal surfaces of wings of male and female Chrysozephyrus ataxus butterflies. The male butterfly has curly scales on the blue or green wings. It was deduced that the interference of the selective incident rays with the wavelength in 560 nm 420 nm and 340 nm 250 nm occurs… (More)
