Hi Kris, please take a look at the ID suggestion I made earlier. This butterfly is certainly a Palamedes Swallowtail. :-)

Great find! The yellow stripe on the underside of the wing is distinctive for the Palamedes Swallowtail. Please compare to images and description on the link I provided above. :-)
