A Super Swallowtail

Papilio pilumnus 1017

If you enjoy swallowtailed butterflies, right now, we have a bit of an overachiever in the tail department! The aptly named Three-Tailed Swallowtail (Papilio pilumnus) is spectacular, with three tails on each of its hindwings. We’ve recently received some of these Central American natives for the Christina Reiman Butterfly Wing, and you should be able to spot some fluttering around the Butterfly Wing through the end of the month.
