Eugene. I have a lot of Sarpedon from southeast Asia, including and caught me, mb of them lost and Milo. Please, can you explain where these spots are, at the edge or anywhere else? Because it is in the image of different sites that are not visible.

Without specialists - from Sarpedon and Milo clear differences in the shape and width of blue spots on the hind wings!

Here like everything is clear - to drag Swallowtail! But what's the difference Graphium sarpedon Gr.milon- from me I do not understand. Maybe specialists prompt ???

Vasily rights. Just some sites sometimes omit the name of the species and subspecies once allowed. This is especially true Morfidov and papillomas. I met M.luna, M. phanodemus, P.stockleyi and others.

Opinions will or will not?

It ought to drag Swallowtail. Or even what opinions will be? Just wondering.

And most likely like this: Papilio machaon aliaska Scudder, 1869

On the label was written Papilio aliaska. Yes, it is similar to P.zelicaon and even P. polyxenes, but the first difference that strikes the eye - is the lack of black spots on the lower wings red eyes.
