Ludlow's Bhutan Swallowtail (Bhutanitis ludlowi) is a species of butterfly in the family Papilionidae. It belongs to the subfamily Parnasiinae which also contains the Apollo butterflies.
This is a highly Threatened species of butterfly. This photograph was clicked by my friend Sonam Dorji from Trasiyangtse, Bhutan which is the endemic to this area.
