|Masara Mine, S Mindinao, Philippines May 1979|
Unquestionably the rarest swallowtail from the Philippines,
so far known only from a handful of specimens caught in Mindanao in primeval
rain forest ranging from the NE to the SE of the island. All records I
know of are from Feb. to May. Likely to be extremely local, but I would
not be surprised to hear that it is on occasion found in fair numbers if
at the right spot and the right time...
