Parnassius stoliczkanus (C&R Felder, 1864)

Pir Panjal, Kashmir; 13500 feet; July 1931 ssp atkinsoni female La Ladhak, Tagalang India Aug 1954 5000 meters ssp tenuis  female above, male below

    Very narrow range, from Pakistan and extreme N India and Kashmir, and may also occur in Tibet. Flies at high altitudes (3500 to 5500 meters) in the Himalayas over rocky and barren landscapes. It is apparently rather rare and very poorly represented in most collections. Most ssp. tend to have smaller red spots as in tenuis to the right.
