Morphos are tricky to ID. Morpho helenor is quite a big and complex group. Morpho peleides which is actually Morpho helenor peleides is quite common in butterfly houses, but there are also other ones. So with Morpho helenor your are on the safe side. I would tend to Morpho helenor peleides, but would not dare to confirm 100%.
