This striking Asian butterfly in a frame is a member of the Swallowtail family. However, it does not have tails on its hind wings like most members of the swallowtail family. Its common name “Mormon” is believed to have come from that unproven fact that males spend time with multiple females. This butterfly specimen is mounted displaying the bright red underside (ventral side). Our collection also has this species displaying the top (dorsal side) and one featuring the front and back.
