How would you like to have your name on a newly discovered species of Owl butterfly (Opsiphanes Group)? Skip a costly Ph.D., hours of studying, sweaty fieldwork, authoring scientific articles ... find out how!

Naming Rights for a New Butterfly Species Up for Auction

Do you fancy yourself as a budding naturalist? If so, now's your chance to make your mark on the scientific community. Win the right to name a new species of Owl butterfly, donate money to butterfly research and let your name live on forever ... all in one fell swoop.

Normally, the only way to name a new species would be to become a scientist, attend years of University classes to get a Ph.D., read (and write) a good many scientific papers, toil for countless hours in remote jungles (battling humidity and jungle rot) and be blessed with LUCK - being in the right place, at the right time. Here's your chance to skip all that and head directly past GO! Make your mark on history!

This new species of Owl butterfly is no piddling little cast-off. It's a big, colorful, showy specimen. The new species belongs to the Owl butterfly group, which are some of the best-known in the world because of their large size, striking colors and large wing eye-spots.

This is a rare opportunity. If slapping your name on this beautiful, new species of butterfly is appealing ... read on brave naturalists.
