 The Asian subspecies, P demoleus malayanus, has been bred on a variety of
citrus plants.  C. aurantifolia, C.microcarpa and C hystrix have been known to
support the species.  A non-lime plant, Murraya koenigii, is also a definite
food plant of Papilio demoleus.

Can anybody tell me of foodplants they have used to successfully rear this
species. I intended to use C. ternata (Mexican Orange Blossom) - what do you
think - any other suggestions.

Thanks for your time
