Papua finally removed! Even though two seasons changed :--)

That's right! New Guinea should be kept, Papua removed. Wrote down just on autopilot. Also true for other Ornithoptera of the Arfak Mountains such as Ornithoptera rotschildi, arfakensis, goliath.

Yes. This is Indonesian New Guinea.

So mountains are true and Papua not?

That's just a blunder. The Arfak Mountains are not in Papua New Guinea but Indonesian New Guinea. West Irian Jaya.
