Common Name: Asian Swallowtail, also known as the Chinese Yellow Swallowtail, or as the Xuthus swallowtai.
Scientific Name: Papilio xuthus
Papilio xuthus is a mid-sized, yellow, prominently tailed butterfly. It has a wingspan of 45 to 55 mm. It is mostly found in Northern Myanmar, southern China, Japan(from Hokkaidō to Yaeyama Islands), Taiwan, Guam, Ogasawarashoto, Korean Peninsula, Maritime province of Siberia, and the Hawaiian Islands.
During oviposition, the swallowtail butterfly drums the leaf surface, releasing chemicals that allow it to determine the suitability of a host plant before laying eggs.
Like most other butterflies, Asian Swallowtail butterflies play an important role to keep the nature in balance by carrying pollen and being a medium of reproducing of the plants.
