Animal Facts:
  1. Class: Insecta
    Family: Papilionidae
  2. many species are found worldwide, but this particular one is native to the UK and only found in the Norfolk Broads, East Norfolk
  3. I couldn’t find an exact population number but the trend is a decreasing one
  4. due to the larvae relying solely on milk parsley which is found in the Norfolk Broads, the population is fragile and entirely dependent on the management/existence of the larvae’s foodplant
