|English term or phrase: great bird-wings|
|....butterflies, that Wallace found on these eastern islands were those he called the "pride of the eastern tropics", the great bird-wings.|
Research told me it is one of the Ornithoptera = Vogelfalter. I am not entirely sure about the "Goliath-Vogelfalter", it just seems to fit in best with "great". Maybe just "Vogelfalter" will do. See the link below for some drawings of different Ornithoptera butterflies.
The other one mentions the "Goliath".
