It is the typical kind of birdwing to which Ornithoptera priamus and Ornithoptera paradisea apply and inhabit Australia from Indo-China. Like a male in the female of birdwing, green brightness is not in feather. The stamp describing the female of Ornithoptera victoriae was issued from British Solomon islands in 1965, and the stamp describing the male was also issued from Solomon Islands which became independent in 1980. Please compare the male of the same Ornithoptera victoriae with the difference in a female.
