Un grand dimorphisme sexuel....la femelle est plus colorée.

Les Papilios memnon peuvent être élevés dans en serre à condition d'avoir une température d'environ 20 à 25 °C et une hygrométrie de plus de 80 %, le manque d'humidité ambiante les dessèche au bout de 2 jours.

The Great Mormon Swallowtail { Papilio memnon } is a common South-Asian butterfly and is widely distributed in 13 subspecies (4 male and 9 female forms). This is a large butterfly with contrasting colors. The wingspan is 12 ~15 cm (4.7 ~ 5.9 inches).

 

The male never has a tail, and is deep blue to black. It may or may not have red streak on the forewing. The female may be tailed (alcanor) or tailess (butlerianus, polymnestoroides). The upperside forewing is ground colour sepia with greyish white streak. The upperside hindwing is blue-black with 5 to 7 yellow or white discal patches. It is polymorphic and with mimetic forms. ( Excellent information is available on Wikipedia.)

 

This photo was taken at the Kipandi Butterfly Park, 36 km from Kota Kinabalu. It shows a male fluttering and tugging at the lantana. The butterfly and flower were vibrating quite vigorously.

a 'Great Mormon Swallowtail' {Papilio memnon},

A pair of mating Great Mormons (papilio memnon) in a sea of purple petals.

 

The female is probably on top since the male does not have a red streak (they can have blue, black, or grey stripes).
