The Common Bluebottle (Graphium sarpedon), or Blue Triangle in Australia, is a species of swallowtail butterfly, that is found in South and Southeast Asia, as well as eastern Australia.
Graphium sarpedon is primarily an inhabitant of moist, low-level rain forests (below 1600 m/5000 feet). In these elevations it is usually seen flying just above the tree canopy. The larvae of the Common Bluebottle feed on trees of the laurel family, which includes the cinnamon tree, and have expanded their range to include cinnamon tree plantations.

I have been collecting and producing taxidermy for over 10 years and ensure all product are museum standard. I personally preserve, spread and mount all insect displays in my studio here in London. I use high quality frames handmade in the UK.
Each specimen may slightly vary from the photos as nature is unique. The specimen I work with are not rare or endangered and come either insect farming programs (often run by governments or conservation groups), breeders and sustainable sources. For more information, please see our ethics page.
