Common Albatross Butterfly - Appias albina

Scientific Name:
Appias albina
Shipping Restrictions:



Appias albina, known as the Common Albatross, is a species of small butterfly within the family Pieridae. It’s widely distributed across Southeast Asia, and parts of Australia. It’s a sexually dimorphic species; males are almost completely white with a relatively thin line of black along each forewing’s anterior termen, while that line is considerably thicker on, and often spans the entire perimeter of the forewings of the female. The species prefers grasslands and other “open” habitats and males within this species, like in many others, can often be found clustered in small groups.


This species has an unassuming charm about it. Simple, yet very elegant. Grab a specimen of your very own today! Our all-natural, intact specimens (no fake parts here!) are all of first-rate quality, delicately prepared, mounted, and framed with double-glass glazing in our very own fabrication studio in Upstate New York. We model our frames from solid fine ashwood, and they’re available in both a matte-black, and a natural finish.

Our framed insects are made-to-order. Please allow up to two weeks for your order to be completed. If you need your order sooner than this, please contact us at 212-343-1114 x401 or and we will do our best to accommodate you!
