Meet the Morphoids: Sepal

 

Sepal is the first Morphoid I discovered.  Despite his effective camouflage, I had noticed him scurry under a bush during one of my daily walks through Fish Creek Park here in Calgary.  I wasn’t sure what it was at first…. I had never seen anything like it.

It seemed to resemble a botanical form I’ve studied- the part connects the stem of a plant to it’s flower, the sepal, and so I was calling this Morphoid Sepal, before I had even an inkling of what a Morphoid was.
