Rocky Mountain Parnassian

Parnassius phoebus


DanielePralong 9 years ago

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.
