Philippine Birdwings Now Available to Overseas Customers

Insect Designs received received some lovely Trogonoptera trojana pairs (pairs of these are hard to get) and Troides rhadamantus pairs from the Philippines. These are now available to our international customers. Unfortunately we are not able to send these to the USA as the extra paperwork required other than CITES permits make it too costly for us to send them there.

Birdwing Butterflies from the Philippines

Whilst we wait for our re-export permit to arrive (this normally takes about a month) these specimens will only be available to our Australian customers. We will put another note here when the permit has arrived and we can ship internationally. In the mean time, if you do not want to miss out on securing a pair or two, you can place and pay for your order and we can hold it for you.
