Walking carefully into Erin camp of Omo forest reserve, one is likely to be welcomed by the Common White-Banded Swallowtail. This is a forest butterfly with some tolerance of habitat degradation and usually fairly common. Both sexes are fond of flowers. The host plant choice of Piper (Piperaceae) is a special character for this butterfly since no other Papilionidae feed on this host plant family.
