The World of Birdwing Butterflies



Troides vandepolli is a mountainous species occurring on Java and Sumatra. In Sumatra its localities have been severely diminished following clearing of forestland for agricultural purposes. Today it may survive only in slopes which have so far avoided 'development'.

In Sumatra vandepolli has a wider distribution in the northern parts of the islands, but little is known about its present status. A new breeding population has been described from Mt. Dempo in southern Sumatra.
