Papilionidae - The Achillides Swallowtail Group (#2)

Papilio bluemi - Indonesia
Papilio ulysses ulysses - Indonesia
Papilio lorquinianus - Indonesia
This portion of the Achillides group is found on the islands of Indonesia and around Papua/New Guinea. Most of the species have speckled green and areas of solid green or green-blue on the wings. Ulysses is the only completely blue one and has no speckling at all. Due to the fact they occur on many islands, there are many subspecies and races.
