Papilio andraemon

Common name: Bahaman Swallowtail

Feeds on these plants:

Papilio andraemon, Bahaman Swallowtail, has been seen in parts of Florida. It has been observed feeding on both Pentas and Plumbago. Its US food sources were previously unknown.

Both butterflies and bees like Pentas - 38 US butterfly species have been recorded feeding on them. It is grown as a perennial in frost-free zones and as an annual in zones with frost. Pentas lanceolata is native to Florida and is cultivated.

Plumbago, a widely cultivated plant, is also very attractive to butterflies. 28 butterfly species have been recorded feeding on them. Plumbago auriculata has naturalized in California, Louisiana, and Florida. Plumbago scandens is a Texas and Florida native. Both plants are cultivated.

Citrus plants, including plants from the genus Zanthoxylum, are viable host plants for the Bahaman Swallowtail. Zanthocylum americanum, clava-herculis, fragara, and coriaceum are native plants in Florida.

This stunning creative common photo of Papilio andraemon, shown here nectaring on Plumbago, was taken by Charles James Sharp.
