Eugene is Ulysses New Guinea (the label is correct, and a butterfly with the early 1990s I). I trust the source 100%.

That's just a label, I think, in these specimens. problem - at a glance nominative, ie about. Ceram, where occur 90% of imported Russian Ulysses.

An interesting quote: "Australia is not only a desert: it is also a country of tropical forests, which lives about 400 species of butterflies (half of them endemic).Most prized Papilio Ulysses (Papilio ulysses) with their pearl-blue wings, almost as beautiful Amazonian Morpho and sell at least a high price to collectors all over the world (the main buyers of Japanese-). Particularly sensitive to the blue color of the males, which are on the grounds of their sexual partners.They see it from a distance of up to 30metrov-a rare case among the butterflies! As a result, they are easy to catch the bait of the blue paper. Ulysses cause among fans no less excitement than some rare species of orchids. Although both are in strictly protected nature, an army of poachers ruthlessly destroys them.This causes the power to apply to the violators unusually strict sanctions ranging from six months to two years in prison even one illegally caught a butterfly.
