It's often a good clue that a "subspecies" is a fake commercial name if it's a location with -ensis attached. The person inventing the name most likely has no knowledge of Latin or proper name creation, but understands that -ensis indicates the specimen's place of origin.
So many Ornithoptera subspecies are indistinguishable from one another unless you know the locality, you would not be able to tell where they came from. I agree with many birdwing subspecies-forms its just about business (money). Because there are so few Ornithoptera species to collect the more new subspecies/forms the better. Its not really about science.
