American Black Swallowtail Papilio polyxenes asterias 

 

It is immediately evident from looking at this striking butterfly that it has a lot in common with the British and European Swallowtails and it is indeed so closely related that it will hybridise with either species. The larvae feed on Fennel and may take Carrot leaves and those of other Umbelliferae. The pupae overwinter but may produce a partial second brood of butterflies in late summer.
