Graphium clymenius (Leech)

"West China, 1910"
S Yunnan China S Yunnan China verso

    Poorly known until recently, but likely a race of Graphium cloanthus and generally common. Note the loss of the green coloration in the older specimen above compared with the fresher ones below. This is due to the breakdown of a pigment in the wings and is a common feature of most of the green Graphium and Eurytides species.
