Description

Our framed blue mountain swallowtail is perfect for adding a touch of nature to your home or office. With their vibrant colors and elegant design, these butterflies are sure to make a statement.

Also native to a portion of northeastern Australia, this exquisite species is used as an emblem for Australian tourism.  The study of this vibrant butterfly allowed Victorian naturalist Alfred Wallace to develop his own theory of evolution, which competed with Charles Darwin’s more famous theory.
