The Swallowtails are insects that have played a fundamental role in the study of ecological and evolutionary problematics for a long time.  This is due, at least in part, to their showy aspect, easily observed and sought after by collectors.  The coincidence of these characteristics in the Papilionidae constituted the necessary premises to gather a large set of data, not only on their morphology but also on their life-cycles and distributions, which are now better known than those of other Lepidoptera except the Heliconidiids.
