Anise Swallowtail Post Earrings -- Papilio zelicaon

Within Oregon and the Pacific Northwest, this beautiful small butterfly can be found in almost any habitat.  The caterpillars accept a wide range of host plants from the parsley and carrot families, and can sometimes be found on garden parsley and fennel.

There are multiple broods in Oregon, with the last caterpillars overwintering as pupae to eclose (hatch) in April.  Desert populations typically just have one spring brood, as the host plant is dried up before the start of summer. 

Item Details:

  • Two gorgeous real Anise Swallowtail wing sections, from one specimen for symmetry.  
  • Choose between forewing or hindwing.
  • Surgical steel posts and bullet-style backs.
  • 14 mm domed glass for magnifying effect.
