Coordinator notes: Your ID is correct! but there seems to be disagreement on nomenclature. BAMONA has this in its system as Papilio rogeri. Butterflies of America (BOA) has it as Heraclides rogeri pharnaces (E. Doubleday, 1846). apparently a somewhat rare creature, so thanks for getting this into BAMONA!
