Papilio rumanzovia Real Taxidermy Butterfly in Handmade Museum Quality Frame
Menelaides rumanzovia the Scarlet Mormon. This is one of the most striking butterflies of them all, with the red spots clustering around the base of the hindwings on the underside like a string of rubies. It is displayed underside-up (the upper side is dull in comparison, black with some smudges of creamy grey). This species is found in the Philippines and Indonesia, with this particular specimen originating from Leyte Island, Philippines.

Please note that the red colouring on this butterflys wings comes from pigmentation rather than refraction (see my listing for Morpho aega or Papilio blumei for descriptions of refraction and their uses), so it will fade slowly if left in direct sunlight. This butterfly has been expertly prepared by hand to museum standards, and is mounted on conservation-grade foam in a large, hand-made, beautifully crafted case backed with Italian decorative paper.

None of the butterflies offered for sale are listed on Annex A of the EU Wildlife Trade Regulations, and all are farmed this ensures that not only are the specimens in perfect condition, but that the practice is completely sustainable. Butterfly farming allows farmers to generate income while conserving their natural heritage.
