|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.
