 SPECIES  Graphium weiskei, Citherias aurorina


 FRAME   14x20xD5cm. Made from recycled products. 

 DESCRIPTION    Two of the most beautifully coloured butterflies in the one frame. AKA Purple Spotted Swallowtail - Graphium weiskei. This small graphium is  one of only two butterflies we have with a shade of purple, hence it is one of our most popular  frames. The unique colouring of mauve changes to pink under  certain lighting and accompanied by subtle shades of blues and greens make this butterfly a must for  any collector. Though it was Carl Ribbe who first  described this butterfly, the name derives from the one who collected the first sample, the German naturalist Emil  Weiske.

 Citherias aurorina. Pretty pink markings on the bottom wings of this clear winged Peruvian butterfly. Georgeous for a little girls bedroom.
