Common Swordtail Butterfly - Graphium polycenes

Scientific Name:
Graphium polycenes
Central African Republic
Shipping Restrictions:



The Common Swordtail Butterfly, Graphium polycenes, is a species of butterfly in the family Papilionidae, found throughout much of Sub-Saharan Africa. Wingspans range between 2.2 and 2.4 inches in males, and between 2.4 and 2.6 in females. The topsides of the wings are black and/or brown, with pale seafoam green patches all over (except for the characteristic swordtails).


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!
