Seen along a pathway in central England but, although I was very pleased to see it, I fear it is just an escape from the nearby butterfly farm! Is it, - coincidentally, one of those Lime Butterflies? .or possibly a Christmas Butterfly?
Edge of town, pathway with wildflower edge.
Thank you both very much for your help
Even we can differentiate these species by looking into the additional spot in the Forewings of Christmas butterfly
It's Absent in lime butterfly.....
In the above link (in the end) they have explained how we can differentiate different papilio species
Yes Anh tuan
Thank you :-)
maradithayamb, The first image shows that its underside does not resemble Papilio demoleus.
