    Obviously this poor wee thing is too deformed to be helped; I have had several hatch in similar case & have regretfully euthanased them. I understand that some clever people have been able to glue ‘new’ wings to butterflies with lesser deformities or injuries. I have quite a few ‘spare’ wings if they are of use to anyone who has fingers more nimble than mine now are. These wings are from deceased butterflies. I’m not quite sure how to pursue this, ie how to get them to those who want to try their luck at assisting butterflies with mild wing problems – any ideas Jacqui?

    Sorry, Stevo, no, nothing can be done for this butterfly. If you keep it, then it will need to be fed because obviously it can’t fly around to find nectar.
