Troides cuneifer (Oberthur, 1879)

Mt Argopuro, E Java; 4/76

   A high altitude species known from Java ( nominate subspecies), the montane regions of central Malaysia (ssp paeninsulae), and the central plateau of Sumatra (ssp sumatrana). May be locally abundant, but its range seems to be shrinking with the expansion of agriculture - it remains to be seen how well it will adapt to the explosive human populations in the region.
