  • The Ulysses butterfly (Papilio ulysses), also known as the blue mountain butterfly, or the blue mountain swallowtail is a large Australian swallowtail. The Ulysses butterfly has a wingspan of about 14 cm (5.5 inches). It lives in northeastern Australia along the coast of Queensland. It inhabits tropical rainforest areas and suburban gardens. The Ulysses butterfly's favorite food plant is euodia (Melicope elleryana), a tree with clusters of small pink flowers growing straight out of the branches. The upper side the wings are an iridescent electric blue; the underside is a more subdued black and brown in coloration. The colors are produced by the microscopic structure of the scales.
    The female of the species differs from the male in that she has little crescents of blue in the black sections of her hind wings. When the butterfly is perched the intense blue of its wings is hidden, helping it to blend in with its surroundings. When in flight the butterfly can be seen hundreds of meters away as sudden bright blue flashes. This butterfly is used as an emblem for Queensland tourism.
