Papilio pericles, or the Blue Gloss Swallowtail, is a butterfly of the family Papilionidae. It is found from the Philippines and Malaysia to Indonesia (Sumatra, Java, Borneo and Sulawesi). Not to be confused with its equally-beautiful but larger cousin, P. ulysses – it is rather smaller, and the colouring is more iridescent. This specimen originates from S. Sumatra, Indonesia.
