This is a review of the entire set of the Butterfly Nature Tube by K&M - Wild Republic.

There are 12 figures in the set. Physically, and the design of several, are clearly influenced by the Butterflies Collectors Case by Safari LTD. The figures have a 60 mm wingspan on average. There are no names, neither on the figures themselves nor on any accompanying paperwork. I have broken the figures below into three categories:

A) Confident Identifications. These are where I am pretty sure I have identified the species or genus correctly.
B) Suggestive Identifications. These I think I am on the right page for their IDs. I have recently bought an atlas on butterflies to assist in their identifications, but I have not been able to confirm them all.
C) Not a Clue. These figures I cannot ID to the genus or species level; some may not have even been modeled after actual species. I am not a lepidopterist, so I am not sure.

If anyone can confirm, correct, or expand upon my identifications, PLEASE do so :). I can edit the thread as needed.

12., swallowtail, NOS
This may or may not (favoring the latter) even be painted after actual species.

Look what I found: a picture of a mexican species, SIPROETA SUPERBA. Doesn't it look like our unknown black butterfly with white stripes?

The australian butterfly? Yes, I did come across that species during my researches, but I continued looking just in case I found something else that fitted. But up to now, it is indeed the only one that looks enough like the toy. So, Graphium deucalion it will be? Smile

Yup, I will update the first post accordingly. I think we got them all, thanks for your tremendous help!

You're welcome. But we still have our caterpillars to identify...

Thank you! Yet I Wonder why I was the only one here who volunteered to help identifying those butterflies: sometimes, the job was really hard and I would have enjoyed a little help from other members. But now, I am releaved and proud: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

I do similar Google search tactics, sometimes they work sometimes they don't. These companies love to copy one-another, so often figuring out one in one series helps be ID another in a different series. For example, I probably never would have identified the Toy Major Cymothoe sangris if Safari hadn't included one in their Butterflies TOOB.

Put your Google search to work here. I am trying to identify some caterpillars

For another generic set, I am having trouble with these. Could be butterflies or moths; a lepidopteran friend of mine who studies caterpillar behavior thinks they are all butterflies...

Could the third Caterpillar of the picture be this one: EILEMA COMPLANA? The imago is a weird-looking moth, grey in color, with orange borders.

Great work cheers
Sorry I didn't help at all. I just have not got the visual fantasy to do such IDs geek
