Mating Scarlet Mormon – Papilio rumanzovia

The Scarlet Mormon (Papilio rumanzovia) is a butterfly of the Papilionidae family. It is found in the Philippines, but has been recorded as a vagrant to southern Taiwan. It is considered a subspecies of Papilio deiphobus by some authors.
The wingspan is 120–140 mm. The male strongly resembles the male Papilio ascalaphus, but lacks the tail at the bottom wing.
The larvae feed on Aristolochia species.

My greatest passion in photography is to capture the wonderful Butterfly. I hope you will enjoy my photos of Butterflies as much I do to watch them and to catch their beauty with my photographs. My camera is a Canon EOS 350D with a Canon Close-Up lens 250D. Thank you so much for your visit, the kind comments, the great support and the Love for Butterflies!
Butterfly Kisses, Johanna
