The life cycle of Morpho rhodopteron (Godman & Salvin, 1880), a species endemic to the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia, is described for the first time. The species has an average development time of 199 days from oviposition to adult emergence, constituting one of the longest life cycles yet described for any Neotropical butterfly. The species feeds on Chusquea sp. (Poaceae). Larval behavior is described, including hostplant use, nocturnal activity, and use of grooming glands.
