Papilio lowi from the Philippines

A very large and grand Swallowtail. The two sexes are quite different. The female is usually tailed, but there are tail-less forms, and is beautifully patterned, very simililarly to the more widespread Papilio memnon.

Males are black, with steely-blue areas on the hindwing. Most often the male has no tails.nhouseThis species can be paired in captivity, in suitable greenhouse conditions. The larvae are Citrus feeders.
