Graphium agamemnon menides
The sexes are similar in pattern, but females have longer tails. The forewing is pointed and the outer margin is slightly serrated. The outer margin of the hindwing is clearly serrated, with a distinct tornal tail. It is dark brown in colour with green patches dispersed throughout. The patches are brighter towards the forewing base, and turn yellowish towards the outer margin of the hindwing. Its underside is pale brown and clouded with pale purplish tinged scales. The green patches are not prominent.
In my backyard.
After months of pinning, finally managed to get an open-winged shot of this one. They are not very clear though; caught these shots when it was in mid-flight.
