Lime Gloss Swallowtail on Graphite (11×14)
Though closely related to the Cobalt Swallowtail, the Lime Gloss Swallowtail is part of an elite tribe of butterflies called “Peacock” or “Gloss” Swallowtails; each possessing part or all of a peacock feather “eye” somewhere on the hindwing.
This species is fairly common throughout many of the Indonesian islands, while entirely absent in others. It is widely captive-bred. Wingspan is 4″ to 4½”.
