The Menelaus Blue Morpho (Morpho menelaus) is an iridescent tropical butterfly of Central and South America. It has a wing span of six inches (15 centimeters). The adult drinks juice from rotten fruit with its long proboscis, which is like a sucking tube. The adult males have brighter colours than the females.

The larva eats plants at night. The larva are red-brown in colour with bright patches of lime-green or yellow. The larvae are also highly cannibalistic.

The blue morpho was featured in the 2004 (14 years ago) Canadian-British movie The Blue Butterfly, starring William Hurt, as well as an episode of Go, Diego, Go!.
