Spicebush Swallowtail (Papilio troilus). These butterflies enjoy open woodlands. Their favorite foodplants are Sassafras and Spicebush, however this swallowtail is on Hunterdon's beautiful native orange milkweed, Aesclepias tuberosa, which is sometimes called butterfly weed or butterfly plant by some nurseries (Glassberg 26).
