EURYTIDES ARIARATHES

Eurytides is a genus of butterflies in the family Papilionidae, found in North, Central, and South America.

Leptocircini is a tribe of swallowtail butterflies that includes the genera Eurytides (kite swallowtails), Graphium (swordtails), and Lamproptera (dragontails).

The tribe consists of roughly 140 species in nine genera worldwide and one native North American species, Protographium marcellus.

Swallowtail butterflies are large, colorful butterflies in the family Papilionidae, and include over 550 species. Though the majority are tropical, members of the family inhabit every continent except Antarctica. The family includes the largest butterflies in the world, the birdwing butterflies of the genus Ornithoptera.

The forked appearance of the swallowtails' hindwings, which can be seen when the butterfly is resting with its wings spread, gave rise to the common name swallowtail.
