Papilio androgeus - the Queen Swallowtail
15x15x6cm frame (red)
Papilio androgeus, the Queen Swallowtail, is found from Mexico to Argentina with a small population in southern Florida. This specimen originates from Peru.
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.
