Philippines: The 50th Anniversary of Diplomatic Relations with Singapore - Joint Issue

To mark 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between these two countries, their postal operators issued two stamps set with butterflies from their countries on 16.5.2019. First one is Pachliopta aristolochiae, the common rose, a swallowtail butterfly belonging to the genus Pachliopta. It is a common butterfly which is extensively distributed across south and southeast Asia. On second stamp you can see Luzon lacewing butterfly or Cethosia luzonica. This is a species of heliconiine butterfly endemic to the Philippines.

Thank you, Aniruddha!
