It is a female of the bird-like butterfly "Queen Alexandra's Wing", or in Latin, "Orinithoptera alexandrae papilonidae". The male and female are so different that they look like two different species, that is, the male has blue and green patterns, while the female's wings are painted black and gold. This butterfly lives in the tropical rainforests of Papua New Guinea, feeds on the nectar of flowers that grow on trees, high above the ground and rarely descends to the ground. In addition to being the largest, this is also the rarest butterfly in the world. An unusual specimen depends on a species of tropical vine whose leaves feed on their caterpillars. The word atlas has so far mostly associated you with a textbook that can hardly fit in a bag. Now there is his namesake, of equally impressive dimensions. Attacusatlas lives in the forests of Southeast Asia and with a wingspan of over 25 cm and an area of ​​about 400 cm square, it is a real miracle among butterflies. Incredible in appearance and pattern, this butterfly is bred in India to produce a special type of silkworm. Since it was entered in the Red Book of Endangered Species, collectors have not regretted the money to include it in their collection. In addition to being the largest, this is also the rarest butterfly in the world.
