This framed Blumei butterfly is a popular choice with collectors. In colouration, it is very similar to the more widespread Palinurus. However, the Blumei is typically larger, and more colourful, exhibiting wings with a bluey-green pattern.
The colours on the wings of this species of butterfly are often referred to as having a metallic look. It makes this butterfly eye-catching especially when viewed from a particular angle which catches the light.
Adult Blumei butterflies grow to various sizes, but typical wingspans are about 4.7 to 5.5 inches (12-14 cm).
