Iphicldes Podalirius

[Linnaeus 1758]

Other names: sail swallowtail, pear-tree swallowtail

Despite the common name ("scarce"), this species is quite common. The scarcity of UK migrants is responsible for the English common name. These swallowtail butterflys inhabit gardens, towns as well as the countryside, in fields and open woodlands
