Attacus atlas (Atlas moth) is a large saturniid moth found in the tropical and subtropical forests of Southeast Asia, and is common across the Malay archipelago. Atlas moths' wingspans are among the largest in the world, reaching over 25 cm. Females are appreciably larger and heavier than the males.

Graphium leonidas, the veined swordtail, veined swallowtail or common graphium, is a species of butterfly in the family Papilionidae, found in Sub-Saharan Africa. The wingspan is 75–80 mm in males and 75–85 mm in females. Has continuous broods, peaking from October to April.
