Western Tiger
created by

Western Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio [Pterourus] rutulus) Top or dorsal view of the wings. - One of the West's most visible butterflies with its black and yellow tiger striping on a 4 to 5 inch wingspan as well as the body which gives it its name-sake. The Tiger Swallowtail is found throughout most of the western United States with the exception of the southwestern desert region. Along the Pacific coast it is found throughout much of the year in association with the caterpillar's host plant of cottonwood, ash, willow, alder, or aspen. Throughout the higher elevations it may only be found in midsummer. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------by Michael W.
