SPECIES  Ornithoptera priamus poseidon Male 

ORIGIN   Australasia

FRAME  20x20xD5cm Made from recycled products. Set on white backboard

DESCRIPTION  DESCRIPTION  Bright emerald green / black wings AKA Priam's Birdwing. The female in contrast is a dull brown and black. This birdwing for sale is not endemic . Ornithoptera priamus euphorion is endemic to Australia. As larva feeds on the  poisonous Aristolochia vine it makes this butterfly unpalatable to predators. The careful conservation of its preferred habitats has ensured this butterfly is no longer endangered. This butterfly indeed can also be seen in many gardens if its food plant is provided. It is a very beautiful butterfly and one we are hoping to be able to stock all year round.

This butterfly is farmed and has been imported with permits.

This video shows the Ornithoptera richmondia - endemic to Australia - it is very similar to the O.poseidon that we are offering for sale. By showing this video we aim to educate the community and hopefully we will see this species back from near extinction.
