Hi Bas! This is Parnassius apollo and not Parnassius phoebus. Parnassius phoebus has an extra red spot on the forewing, and boldly striped antennas.
I think you have the right one, only the red spot is missing. but i found more picture's of this kind with a orange or yellow spot on the bottom wings.thanks for the ID
Bas, was there any red spots on your butterfly. I have found one that might fit Phoebus Parnassian.
Dan find this specie...last month...!!
