Papilio nephelus (Black-and-white helen swallowtail)


Wikipedia Abstract

Papilio nubilus is a rare species of swallowtail butterfly from the genus Papilio that can be found in Borneo. Previously listed as a distinct species ( D'Abrera 1982, Munroe 1961), but now regarded (by Collins & Morris 1985, Tsukada & Nishiyama 1982: 307) as an interspecific hybrid between Papilio nephelus and Papilio polytes.
