Straatmana Deslisle (2007) (not Rumbucher, 1973) is a replacement name for the junior homonym Zeunera Deslisle (2001) which was described as a genus group name in Ornithoptera to separate alexandrae from other species, not as a species name.
IFTA has not been resurrected. I am talking to Catherines sister right now in Rabaul but recent activity of the local "firegod" is making communications a tad difficult. I know Catherine - and though was with IFTA - I don't believe she ever exported alexandrae with permits. IF I can contact Catherine I will ask her but I have a rather full agenda to discuss with her and this may or may not come up in those conversations. Now this is something Adam may be able to verify or not - but the trick to CITES APPENDIX 1 is to get an initial permit for the collection of parent stock only. They may breed and then the resultant progeny must be bred to produce the F2 Generation and then these may be downgraded to appendix TWO and thus legal to export as the lower appendix qualification. Additionally I have been told that they still have not bred alexandrae in Capitivity. That the species is or was in cages but was only hanging from the cover and then simply died. (J. Tennent pers com).
O.alexandrae for atavis was Kurt's paper - just males with gold spotting - not common but also not rare. It is interesting and the most I have seen are males with three gold spots on the HINDWINGS. and yes Adam has the chronology and descriptions correct and from memory there was an IUZN complication with the use of Zeunera as a Generic name.
The name Zeunera was first described as a genus of Orthoptera by Piton in 1936, so Deslisle's 2001 name is a junior homonym and thus unavailable under the ICZN Code. As a result Deslisle replaced it with Straatmana in 2007.
Looks like a genuine pair. The seller is from Russia. I wonder if they have any of data which should be important factor apart from them being a bred pair? It does not seem to say if he has a permit or not but I very much doubt it.
Oh, and it seems obvious that these are not very old specimens, they are not spread with legs in position the way Meek would have done. Perhaps they came from Ray Straatman, but I think they look much fresher than those 1970s specimens.
Unless live in Russia who wants to pay $5000.00 and most likely loose it. How one can even think of placing bid on it. Until having export/import permits in hand risk of financial lost and potential jail penalty is great.
