Iphiclides is a genus of butterflies of the family Papilionidae (swallowtails).

Species

It contains three species:

I. podalirius

Iphiclides podalirius (Linnaeus, 1758), the scarce swallowtail, is a butterfly found in gardens, fields and open woodlands. It is found in places with sloe thickets and particularly orchards. It is widespread throughout Europe with the exception of the northern parts. Its range extends northwards to Saxony and central Poland and eastwards across Asia Minor and Transcaucasia as far as the Arabian Peninsula, India, and western China. The scarce swallowtail is getting rarer as due to loss of habitat and food plants. It is protected by law in some European countries. It is considered rare or endangered in some provinces of Austria and of indeterminate status throughout Europe.

I. feisthamelii

Iphiclides feisthamelii (Duponchel, 1832), the southern swallowtail, is a swallowtail found on the Iberian Peninsula and in Northwest Africa. The southern swallowtail was previously considered a subspecies of I. podalirius.

I. podalirinus

Iphiclides podalirinus (Oberthür, 1890), the Chinese scarce swallowtail, is a little-known species occurring in China, that was also previously considered a subspecies of I. podalirius. It is not known to be threatened but more data is required on this butterfly.
