Techniques for maintaining a culture of the black swallowtail butterfly papilio polyxenes asterius papilionidae

, : Techniques for maintaining a culture of the black swallowtail butterfly papilio polyxenes asterius papilionidae. Journal of the Lepidopterists' Society 39(2): 125-133

A culture of the black swallowtail butterfly, Papilio polyxenes asterius Stoll (Papilionidae) is initiated from field-collected females. One hundred to two hundred larvae are reared on potted plants in a greenhouse. Adults are housed in an environmental growth chamber with a 16 L/8 D photoperiod, day and night temperatures of C and C, respectively, and with a relative humidity at 70- .+-. 15%. Adults are hand-fed and hand-paired.
