    One of the less common of the endemic Cuban swallowtails, the species is extremely local and seasonal in occurence but widespread on the island. It seems more frequent in the east. Female is shown to the right and is a mimic of Battus devilliers, while the male has been proposed as a mimic (?) of Battus polydamas.
