Oregon Swallowtail,   Papilio bairdii oregonia <LEP13>


     A denizen of the hot basalt canyons of the Columbia River, this beauty is the official Oregon State Insect.  It has the same pattern as the Anise and Old World Swallowtails, but its bands and spots are deeper yellow.  The orange spot with a blue cap on the hindwing has a flattened black dot in it.  The dot is round on the Anise and missing in the Old World.
