The Sea Green Swallowtail (Papilio lorquinianus) is found on the islands of Indonesia and Papua New Guinea and is black with iridescence turquoise and green areas. Interestingly, due to the fact it occurs on many different islands, there are many different forms (subspecies) because of their geographical distribution and isolation. This was one of our preserved butterflies that was featured in the Pottery Barn Kids catalog. Learn more about the natural history of swallowtails.
