Green Banded Peacock

Dear Beverly the bugwhisperer,
We did a web search of “green swallowtail butterfly pavilion” and we quickly identified your Green Peacock,
Papilio palinurus, on the Butterfly Pavilion website which has this short entry:    “Southeast Asia Camouflaged underneath, this butterfly displays bright green bands when it opens its wings.”  Wikipedia calls it the Emerald Swallowtail.
