I am playing catch up after a fabulous weekend celebrating my son’s Bar Mitzvah.
I was learning the daf last week in my office when a colleague noticed a picture of a butterfly (daf 90a). I explained that the Koren was an amazing work of academia which seeks to clarify obscure language etc found in the Talmud. He asked how they described the butterfly and I responded that it was the Virachola livia. He told me this was wrong.
After some further research we confirmed that the picture on the daf (see below) is in fact the painted lady and not as described by Koren. So readers always beware and confirm the research of others. Perhaps this is one for Rabbi Nathan Slifkin to confirm for us?
