|Sunset Moth boasts a five
banded complex eye zone that is mimicked and clearly displayed on the
sepals, making this plant a standout in complex eye breeding. The
different shades of charcoal-purple, purple, grey-blue and burgundy are
stunning above the dark green throat. The grey-blue butterfly looking
patches are metallic and sheen in the sunshine like fish scales.
'Sunset Moth' is named after a brightly coloured moth found in South
America, as the patterned and banded eye zone reminds of a specimen of
this moth which is hanging on my wall in my butterfly collection.
