the Great Mormon

Did you know the late Paul Walker was raised Mormon before leaving the church as an adult. Fast and Furious. But here we are talking about a butterfly, the Great Mormon (Papilio memnon)

It has a large wing span: 11-14 centimetres

The males have black wings with red marks on the base of their forewings but have no tails. The hindwings of the females have white patches, with or without tails. sexually dimorphic AND polymorphic. That is probably enough to get arrested in some countries.
