Framed Blue Mountain Swallowtail Butterfly


The Blue Mountain Butterfly (Papilio ulysses), also known as the Ulysses Butterfly, is one of the largest and most vivid Asian swallowtails. Also native to a portion of northeastern Australia, this exquisite species is used as an emblem for Australian tourism. The study of this vibrant butterfly allowed Victorian naturalist Alfred Wallace to develop his own theory of evolution, which competed with Charles Darwin’s more famous theory.
