The jewel in the crown! Papilio ulysses is found in the Australasia / Indomalaya ecozone, with this specimen originating from the Bachan Islands, Indonesia.
The central splash of bright, electric blue is surrounded by a velvet black, all set off inside the black frame. The males are especially attracted to blue objects, even from a distance of 30 metres. Collectors often exploit this by using a piece of blue paper or cloth to attract the butterflies, although the butterfly here was captive bred. The butterfly has been expertly prepared by hand to museum standards, and is mounted on conservation-grade foam in a hand-made, beautifully crafted case backed with Italian decorative paper.
Absolutely ideal for wedding presents, Christmas and birthday presents, home decoration. If you have any queries, or would like to request a different specimen, please get in touch!
