Graphium stresemanni

Graphium stresemanni is a vulnerable species of butterfly in the family Papilionidae. It is endemic to the Indonesian island of Seram. It closely resembles the related Graphium weiskei, a more common species from New Guinea but has been treated as a distinct species. It is rare.

Taxonomy[edit]

Graphium batjanensis described by Okano in 1984 appears to be allopatric to G. stresemanni and the same species.It has also been suggested to be conspecific with G. weiskei.
