Papilio polytes romulus
A female Common Mormon oviposting on Common Mormon (female) - Papilio polytes romulus. Seen in my garden yesterday afternoon oviposting on young Curry leaves (Murraya koenigii). When I looked for the egg, I found there was already an older one,or maybe a different species?, on the next leaf. The yellow one is the fresh one (it's the size of a pin head).
