Green Birdwing - 8x6 Riker Mount
The Green Birdwing (Ornithoptera Priamus poseidon / teucrus)
- Wingspan: 5 inches
- Origin: Papua New Guinea
The Green Birdwing (Cape York Birdwing, Common Green Birdwing, Priam's Birdwing, or Northern Birdwing) is a stunning showstopper with its electrifying green color! Its abdomen is a lovely banana yellow, which is also much larger than most butterflies.
Note: There are many Priamus subspecies that have very minor differences from the poseidon; occasionally, we may use a different subspecies like Priamus teucrus. It looks the same as the poseidon, except it has 2 small yellow dots on top of its hindwings.
