I observed this also today with a freshly emerged swallowtail, I guess he wanted to get rid of all this baby, meaning pupae stuff ;-)...

Terrible group! There were some re-naming: Eurytides, Protesilaus and Protographium. You have to look very carefully at each stripe and color markings and compare. In my eyes it is almost impossible to get down to species with a single photograh.

Thanks, This butterfly was next to a river, plenty of fluids expelled from the rear of his body
