Thanks for asking,
This butterfly is known as the Queen
Alexandra Birdwing! The females wings are
brown and white, and the males are the more
brightly colored green/blue. The reason the males
are more brightly colored, and this is true for a
lot of species in the world, is that the males
usually have to attract the female! The color
helps them do that.
According to National Geographic, the largest
known butterfly is Queen Alexandra's
birdwing, in Papa New Guinea. Females have
black-lined wings with a greenish color while
males have brown and yellow wings. Both male and
female genders of this butterfly have a black
upper body and a yellow lower body.
