Here are a few nice ones, top to bottom:
Papilio astyalus
Eurytides philolaus
Papilio pilumnus...
Many thanks. While on the subject of stray Papilionidae: is it known whether Papilio anchisiades actually has an established population in South TX, or is it more likely that any adults seen on the US side of its range are all strays from Mexico? -

This was separated as Papilio pallas by Lewis et al. (2014, Role of Caribbean Islands in diversification & biogeography of Neotropical Heraclides swallowtails. DOI: 10.1111/cla.12092). P. astyalus occurs in South not Central America.

Spectacular! :)

I have a specimen of C. doubledayi that I consider myself rather fortunate to have obtained, several years ago. Certainly, it doesn't seem to be available very often as compared to many other Charaxes.

Cabintom posted some excellent photos of the species, here -

Long time I didn't post anything here.

A rare Agrias phalcidon fournierae form rebillardi. Even rarer than the typical rebillardi form, this is a bicolor form with purple below the red patch. There are few other bicolor rebillardi specimens known. The purple effect is due to a red suffusion mixed in the blue in these 2 cells.
