Tiger Swallowtail Papilio glaucus North America

 

 

The Tiger Swallowtail is perhaps North America’s grandest swallowtail. As a curiosity, a small proportion of females emerge as melanics, not as beautiful as the typical female, but different! They can be bred in captivity and the larvae are as exotic as many of the tropical swallowtails, with the Papilio eye markings and bird dropping camouflage in the early instars.

 

Try feeding them on Cherry or Lime, and they will probably take a wider variety of foodplants.
