Dear Olivier On your mail, the picture of of the male ornithoptera alexandrae, is very similar to mine. It seems captured and also prepared by AS Meek himself. Can you give me some information (pedigree) of it, because I cannot read the label on the picture. For my personal specimen it seems the label is printed by perhaps LeMoult who bought thjs specimen to President Laniel and to A Vadon who have a small entomologic shop...and finally me. The specificity of the Meek preparation is the front legs parallel to antennas.
You can see the picture of my male specimen on the wonderful book from G.Delisle & JP SCLAVO Bien amicalement
Meek sent Rothschild eight perfect specimens of O. alexandae from the Kumusi River during 1907. The excess O. alexandrae was passed by Rothschild at Meek's request to the London dealers. The dealer Oliver Janson was sent a box of 39 pairs of O. alexandrae to sell to collectors. All bred by Meek. There must be quite a few of Meek's bred specimens of alexandrae out their somewhere. He set most of his specimens in the field.
