Looks a bit like Parides

Looks a bit like Parides dasarada... based solely on looking at images on Google!

Swallow tail

I am fairly certain of my ID Paul.
It is incredibly beautiful and photographed from above, fully expanded, would be a good challenge.
Let's have some more butterflies please (if you are there regularly).

just thrown...

...another into the mix. Parides or this is also my thoughts - probably needed more pics I guess.
Pajodor do you have any other pics of this beautiful Windmill butterfly?
Perhaps we need to leave it at the genus Atrophaneura?
