Ornithoptera Urvillianus from Solomon Islands

Whilst sorting my boxes containing birdwing butterflies I came across some pairs of Ornithoptera urvillianus from the Solomon Islands. I am not currently able to re-export them because of a current ban on CITES material from the Solomons. However, they are available to all Australian customers. I have 3 A1/A1- pairs available. Once sold I will put up a few A- and A2 pairs. Visit the birdwing page now for a browse.
