Common Bluebottle Butterfly in Resin - Graphium sarpedon

The Science:

The Common Bluebottle (Graphium sarpedon) is a member of the Papillonidae, or Swallowtail family, which includes many of the largest, most spectacular and prized specimens in the world. Common across South and Southeast Asia, this mostly black butterfly has a bold segmented streak of turquoise-blue across its wings and red spots on the lighter-brown-colored underwings.

The Story:

This is a real specimen of the Common Bluebottle Butterfly, a medium-sized Butterfly often spotted flying at tree-level or in small groups (often all facing the same direction: into the wind), drinking on the ground from sandy puddles to replenish essential minerals . The larvae typically feed on Wild Cinnamon or Laurel leaves. Embedded in a block of solid Lucite, the delicate wings of this specimen have been spread out to show the distinctive colors and patterns, making it a great little piece of Insect science decor or educational display!
