Melissa Tumblin, Executive Director of Ear Community and Founder of the Facebook Microtia and Atresia Support Group, makes sure that her daughter Ally’s Ponto Pro has a story that she is proud of. Because Ally has Microtia and Atresia, Melissa decided it would be a great learning experience for Ally to decorate her Ponto with stickers of the Microtia butterfly.
“Microtia is a monophyletic genus of butterflies from southern USA and Central America in the family Nymphalidae that contains the species Elf (Microtia elva)*.”
