Tropical Butterflies

This website about tropical butterflies is currently limited almost to one subject: tropical butterflies that produce sounds audible to humans. I hope to develop the site further with the cooperation of visitors who wish to collaborate with texts and images, as well as when I find some free time to work on the site.

The fact that butteflies produce loud sounds is not widely known. However, sound production seems to have evolved several times in butterflies and the loudest sounds have been reported for tropical butterflies.
