Papilio leucotaenia (Rothschild, 1908)

Burundi  Sept 1989 - a beautiful example of the female  Bwindi Forest, Uganda; Aug 1967   male verso

    One of the rarest of the African swallowtails, it is known only from relict highland forests in SW Uganda, Rwanda, W Burundi, and E Zaire. Exceedingly local and  under threat of extinction in the not distant future due to intense population growth and deforestation in the region. Females are exceedingly rarely encountered.
