Papilio palinurus, the emerald swallowtail, emerald peacock or green-banded peacock, is a butterfly of the genus Papilio belonging to the Papilionidae family. It is native to Southeast Asia, but is regularly kept in butterfly houses around the world. The iridescent green sheen of the bands of this butterfly is not produced by pigments, but is structural coloration produced by the microstructure of the wing scales. They refract the light and give rise to blue and yellow visible reflections, producing the perception of green color when additively mixed. Needless to say, these are a sight to behold in person.

Ethical sourcing is our number one priority. All of our taxidermy, skulls, bones, sealife and other natural science specimens have met our rigorous standards. See our "about us" section for more information or contact us with specific question.
