Yes, Agnes. <i look inthe same web site, cos I'm friend of Peter Hardy. Thats the reason I think in T. magellanus cos I took the pic in North Luzon. Thx and tnx to #andreshernandez

Oops... Troides aeacus does not occur in the Philippines (http://pbh-butterflies.yolasite.com/phil...), although it could be found in the neighboring countries (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troides_aea...).
