Could you please help me to find out what is the type of my butterfly?
Thanks a lot
Despite lacking tails on its hindwings, your butterfly is in the family Papilionidae, and most of the members of the family are commonly called Swallowtails. Using the site Butterfly Corner, we have identified your butterfly as Papilio demodocus, a species commonly called Citrus butterfly, Orange Dog or Christmas Butterfly, though some of those common names are shared by other members of the genus.
