Just acquired from an older collection! Papilio laglaizei is a very rarely sold specimen that mimics the toxic Alcides orontes moth. These are extremely difficult to buy, at the time of this listing there is only one other specimen being sold in the US.

As shown in the photos, the females are generally larger than the males, but the coloration is very similar. Note, all butterflies will have some natural color and size variation. 

Once these are sold we will likely never get them in stock again! 

Shipped unmounted with wings closed.

We work really hard to find great, ethical farms around the world. 'Insect ranching' has been shown to dramatically aid conservation and increase insect numbers in the wild, as well as giving local, indigenous people a sustainable income source other than logging. 
Protecting insects means protecting the habitat they live in. This benefits every plant and animal sharing this habitat. Sustainable butterfly farming gives local populations an alternative to logging and clear-cutting rain-forest. The forests are preserved, critical habitat for endangered species is maintained, and butterfly populations increase. Everything we source is sustainably sourced and 100% legally imported.
