A group of those endemic to Cuba can be found in the province of Camaguey, which includes the Hazel Phoebis (Phoebis avellaneda) butterfly, named in honor to the writer Gertrudis Gomez de Avellaneda according to the web site of the newspaper Adelante.
Native to the capital city of that province is the large and magnificent Metamorpha Stelenes, which proliferates in the summer primarily and often flies at the sidewalk level.
There is also the Cuban Greta, with his transparent wings, which is the king butterfly that makes its way to the coasts of Camaguey after crossing the Atlantic Ocean and continues southward to Latin America. The Senegalese Coffee Butterfly also travels to the province from Africa.
The Major General Agramonte Provincial Museum has one of the widest collections of these insects, consisting of more than 1,500 exotic national specimens.
