Birdwings are finally available! These have all been legally imported into the USA in the late 90s from Bali, Indonesia.  Birdwings are the most collected and difficult group of butterflies to obtain, all species are protected under CITES law.  Because these were legally imported, they do not need documentation to ship or be owned within the US.  Wingspan measures approx. 4.5-5”

Males and females available, photo is of a male, the females are generally slightly larger and have more black spots in the yellow areas.

Shipped unmounted with wings closed.

Each butterfly may vary in size and coloration.

DON'T RISK BUYING FROM INTERNATIONAL SELLERS! It is illegal! These are highly protected and monitored butterflies and MUST clear a US Fish and Wildlife Inspection and have the proper permits to enter the US.  These are from an older N. American collection, and have 100% been legally imported from IFTA in Papua New Guinea, and can be bought and owned completely legally by anyone in the US. 

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.
