This is a striking species of Indonesian swallowtail. The thing that all Papilionidae (swallowtails) have in common is not the recognisable tales that many species have on their hind wings, but rather a trait that all their larvae share. Papilionid caterpillars have an ‘osmeterium’: an organ that looks like a forked tongue near their head that can emit a foul odour!
