When we first started raising butterflies in 2010, the Pipevine Swallowtail is the one we wanted to raise. Although we have had several Dutchman's Pipevine (their host plant) we never even saw one. There was a Swallowtail that laid eggs, but it was the Polydamas Swallowtail. Since I didn't know the difference, I called that one Pipevine. Well, four years later, I know the difference and I am thrilled to see these REAL Pipevine Swallowtails.
Our first Pipevine Swallowtail!
