Lime Swallowtail Butterfly

Papilio demoleus


Two butterflies on the same plant. Taken at a Butterfly farm in Subic, Zambales, Philippines. I have looked through a lot of photos of butterflies in the Philippines but have not been able to identify any photos I took on 22 December 2013.

Thanks; you need to change the mistake in the scientific name to "demoleus" :) Happy New Year

Thanks Emilie!! Joe

Joe and Emillie sorry for the confusion. It is indeed Papilio demoleus, so the name needs to be edited. Pardon my bad memory and typing.

Must be P. demoleus, I think. Nice shot!
