Graphium Weiskei(Purple Spotted Swallowtail) -Male
Graphium Weiskei(Purple Spotted Swallowtail) -Male -Papua New Guinea -(2.25 in wingspan).
As is often the case the Common Name(Purple Spotted Swallowtail) is a misnomer.
That is, there is a Pink, Purple and Blue Form and the Pink Form is the most common.
This particular specimen is the Pink Form, although there is some Purple here where the
Blue suffuses with the Pink.
The Blue Form is SOLID Blue and the Purple Form is a mix of the Pink and Blue Forms.
