The papilio ulysses is an Australian butterfly from Queensland. The underside of its wings are more brown in colour, leaving the butterfly visible as bright blue bursts of colour when in flight. The beautiful blue is produced by the structure of the scales, a phenomenon called structural colouration.


With this product you will receive a beautifully displayed papilio ulysses inside a frame made of recycled products. It ships inside a cardboard box, also made of recycled products. From butterfly to butterfly there may be a slight colour difference. Each specimen is prepared by the Bits and Bugs team of artisans who have over 10 years of experience.

Frame size: 200 x 200 x 50mm

Packaging size: 220 x 220 x 55mm
