Tailed Jay (Graphium Agamemnon)
No it isn't a dried leaf, it's a butterfly!! The tailed jay belongs to the category Papilionidae (Swallowtail butterfly).
Agamemnon was the brother of Menelaus, the husband of Helen of Troy. Why a butterfly is named after the decidedly mentally messed up megalomaniacal king is not something i know.
