Species Name: Papilio dardanus

Common Name: African Swallowtail Butterfly

Origin: Africa

Size: 5" x 7" White Shadow Box Frame

Made in Australia


Papilio dardanus has the common name of the African Swallowtail as it lives on a great deal of the African continent.

The males are pale yellow with black margins, or brown on the underside, and they have long tails on their hind wings. Their wingspan can be 4 to 4.7 inches.

It can be harder to correctly identify the females because they are known for their mimicry. They take a variety of morphs, forming many subspecies and forms across this species as they mimic distasteful milkweed butterflies to avoid being eaten by predators.

The females generally don’t have the same tails on their hind wings as the males, with the exception of the populations in Madagascar, Ethiopia, Somalia and Comoros where they look similar to males

They are preserved similarly to how museums do it.

Established in Huntington Beach, CA. early in 2001, Sullen got it’s start from being heavily influenced by Southern California beach culture and tattoo inspired art. With a strong focus on ideals and practices of modern tattooers, Sullen evolved from a small group of art driven tattooers and artists into a world renowned “Art Collective”. As a whole, the “Collective” is drawn to the idea that art of all forms should be promoted, while related ideas should be shared for the world to learn from.
