I did a google pic search on Luehdorfia puziloi, and the butterfly in Prozacfield's picture looks nothing like it.

I just googled your version (Leuhdorphia puziloi) of the scientific name, and guess how many hits I got? One, in the first comment on this page! - Luehdorfia puziloi resulted in 23,900 hits.

Nitpicker, I have checked with numerous sources and have found both spellings. Your spelling is prevalent in usage along with the "English" language, mine is prevalent when used in an "Eastern European or Oriental" language. Since this name is scientific latin and not part of any language, it is not a problem arising from translation. I am not aware of any ICZN ruling on this. Before writing my comment, I was simply relying on my memory, without making any attempt to verify the spelling.

Luehdorfia, not Leuhdorphia.

This is Leuhdorphia puziloi, The Early Spring Swallowtail and not Papilio machaon at all. L. puziloi is found in both Europe and Asia.
