I wonder why the Leps team have not been here.
You have only claimed Papilio machaon, not a sub sp. which it still might be of couse.
I have agreed because all the pictures I can find, in my books and the Web, match!

Thanks. It's hard to know why some posts get overlooked.. Many do when a lot get posted in a day, but this went up at a quiet time. Maybe too quiet...
