DESCRIPTION AKA Cattlehearts. Great combination of black swallowtails with bright red / green markings. These butterflies feed on the Aristolochia vine which are poisonous and thus pass on the toxins to the adult who has an inbuilt deterrant against predators. These are beautiful species with elongated fore wings and pretty scallops on the hind wings. Adults ( who live for a short 8 days only ) feed on the flowers of Impatiens.
