The hunt for Lyssa zampa

2009 seems to have been a decent year for the tropical swallowtail moth, Lyssa zampa, with 8 records submitted by various people. Some posted their comments to this blog and sent me photos.

This year, I suddenly received two records over the past two days. It’s already June (the moth has appeared mostly in May in 2005 and 2009) but I thought I’d see what I can gather. So I have posted a note in Habitatnews, “Lyssa zampa, the tropical swallowtail moth, returns.”
Help me look, thanks!

Send your records to

And photos if any to:
