Purple Spotted Swallowtail - 5x4 Riker Mount
Purple Spotted Swallowtail (Graphium weiskei)
- Wingspan: 2 - 2 1/2 inches
- Origin: Papua New Guinea
The Purple Spotted Swallowtail has an awesome array of colors in its pattern, making it one of our most popular butterflies! The grass green, sky blue, and light violet really stand out against the black. Sometimes the light violet fades into a nice blue (as pictured), and the blue at the bottom of the hindwings can be darker than the blue on the forewings. This butterfly is also completely matte, so you can appreciate the colors as they are!
