Graphium weiskei, the purple spotted swallowtail, is found only in the highlands of New Guinea. These swallowtails live in elevations of 4,500 to 8,000 feet (1,400 to 2,400 m).
The name honours the collector Emil Weiske.
This butterfly has been prepared in the UK to museum standards and is displayed in a deep handmade shadowbox frame, mounted on white conservation-grade foam. The back of the frame is covered in really special Italian decorative paper, with a brass hook for hanging it on the wall (but it also stands perfectly on a mantlepiece or a table). It is completely sealed inside the frame and will last for generations.
