Papilio demodocus demodocus
Papilio demodocus, also known as the citrus swallowtail, is a large swallowtail butterfly common to sub-Saharan Africa.
Citrus swallowtails pass through approximately three generations per year. Eggs are laid singly on citrus tree leaves. After about six days, the egg hatches into an immature larva. http://www.sntc.org.sz/biodiversity/sdbu...
