The Ulysses (Papilio ulysses) butterfly has a wingspan of about 14 cm. It inhabits the tropical rainforests of North Queensland. When in flight the butterfly can be seen hundreds of metres away as sudden iridescent electric blue flashes. The Cairns Birdwing (Ornithoptera euphorion) is Australia’s largest butterfly species, with females reaching a wingspan of up to 16 cm. Males are usually a few centimeters smaller and have a predominately black upper wing with emerald green flashes.
