Mutant butterfly (gynandromorph)
I originally called this a mutant because I had never seen one and didn't know what else to call it. I have since learned that it is a gynandromorph and if you'd like to read additional information about them, you can check out the following site:

Thanks for the photos and information. Even with many hundreds of hours spent years ago in a butterfly conservatory and considered a quasi-staff member, I don't ever remember hearing (let alone seeing) of this condition.
Great capture! V
I missed the explanation when I first saw these photos. I thought they were pretty amazing before now...... WOW!
This is about as odd as I've think I've seen. What a great find, I'll check the link.
This is fascinating! I had not heard of these gynandromorphs - makes sense (I guess) when I read the explanation. Thanks for sharing and educating.
