Oregon Swallowtail Resin Earrings -- Papilio machaon oregonius

The official state insect of Oregon, this is a fairly common butterfly if you know where to look, but never numerous in the Columbia River Basin.  This species thrives in desert habitats and basalt canyons along streams and rivers where its larval host plant thrives.

There are several broods within the region, with the last overwintering as pupae in September/October to eclose (hatch) as fresh adult butterflies in April/May.

These use the more simple forewing wing sections.  (See other listing for the more colorful hindwings)

Item Details:

  • Two gorgeous real Oregon Swallowtail wings, from one specimen for symmetry. 
  • Wings have a gorgeous epoxy resin finish on each side.
  • Very lightweight.
  • Choice of .925 sterling silver ear wires, or hypoallergenic Niobium ear wires.  (Niobium are less shiny, but contain no nickel.  See picture)
