The cabbage butterfly can be found most anywhere in the world, from Europe to North Africa to South America, all the way to Australia, where population were introduced to the local ecosystem by accident. They are considered pests by commercial agriculture companies, but from an aesthetic point of view, their delicate translucence and white-and-brown patterning reveal the cabbage butterfly as a gorgeous lepidopterological subject. They start life as eggs, develop into larva, and eventually as encased pupa. After their transformation, they emerge as fully formed adult butterflies.
With this educational specimen, you can see firsthand all of the stages of a life of a cabbage butterfly. The block features real-life samples of eggs, larva, pupa and male and female adult moths, as well as a specimen of a plant leaf that the cabbage butterfly larva has begun to ravage. All of this is nicely presented in an acrylic block. Used as a slide under a microscope or as a hands-on specimen, this makes a fantastic addition to any science classroom.
