|Ait-Abdallah, 1700 meters, East Tafraute, Morocco May 18 1999 ssp???||Region of Matmata 250 meters, Tunesia June 5 1999|
N Africa from Morocco east to Arabia and Yemen. Often
treated as a subspecies of P machaon, but apparently
quite distinct in its early stages and probably more closely related to
P hospiton. Not particularly common anywhere
and very seasonal in its emergence (based on the timing of the rains).
Well adapted to semi-arid and arid climates.
