 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.
