The first butterfly I noticed that had a marvelous odor was Euchioe
I smelled the first one I thought well maybe it is only this specimen.
I smelled the
next one I caught and it smelled the same. The only other butterfly I
specifically smelling pleasantly is Papilio polyxenes. I also at first
wondered whether the black swallowtail had picked up the scent from the
flowers it had visited. After a while I began to doubt this because the
scent always seemed to be the same and every black swallowtail I caught
surely could not have been visiting the same flowers.
If you want to smell a lovely smelling butterfly, try Echloe
