Pipevine Swallowtail

The large Pipevine Swallowtail is sexually dimorphic, meaning males and females look different. Male Pipevine Swallowtails have iridescent blue on the upper hindwings while females are much more subdued.

Pipevine Swallowtails are active in the Hocking Hills during the shoulder seasons - early spring and late summer through autumn.

Pipevine Swallowtails frequent open areas like fields and gardens. These swallowtails lay bright orange eggs on pipevine plants, the only food these dark maroon caterpillars eat.
