Please check the ID and add the 2 names:
Androgeus Swallowtail and Heraclides androgeus epidaurus.

No, problem! Happens to me as well, happy to find a clue and a match and afterwards... notifying something is wrong...
Endemic or not, just a little detail...

Hum, sorry, my mistake about the "endemic". I haven't checked very well.

I agree, Heraclides androgeus epidaunus, Quen Page. However, it is not endemic to Puerto Rico, but found in Central America and the Greater Antilles.
