This butterfly goes by many names: Emerald Swallowtail, Emerald Peacock, or Green-banded Peacock. Regardless of its nom de plume, its native to southeast asia and is known for its beautiful green colouring. Fun Fact: The green of Papilio palinurus is created by structural coloration, using special microstructures in the wing scales. I don't know what any of that means, but if you buy this bug, which has been expertly, and carefully preserved in the Philippines, maybe you can find out.
