These all sound like south-east Asian butterflies. I can only offer an
approximation on the scientific names of some of these:
striped blue bottle - probably a Graphium species, possibly a sub-species
of Graphium sarpedon
clipper - Parthenos sylvia
orange albatross - Appias sp, possibly Appias nero
malasian jay - possibly a Malaysian sub-species of Graphium agamemnon
great orange tip - Hebomoia glaucippe
and banded peacock - ???
Hope this has been some help.
