Heraclides thoas autocles
Thanks for clearing that up. ID changed.
Yes, indeed, the "same", but only almost ;-)Look at the left part of the base of the right forewing. There you see 4 spots (ok, actually 3 1/2 spots), Thoas has here 4 spots, whereas Cresphontes has only 3. In addition and more important are the "flattened" spots above these 3or 4 spots. Cresphontes has "spiky" spots.http://bugguide.net/node/view/846380/bgi...
Bayucca, how can you distinguish between H. cresphontes and H. thoas? When I was trying to ID the swallowtail in my picture I found them practically the same.
