North Africa, the Iberian Peninsula and southern France.
Zerynthia rumina is an extremely striking species. In South east France it can be confused with the "southern festoon", Zerynthia polyxena. The two can be told apart by the presence of blue on the hindwing of the Southern festoon Z. polyxena. The Spanish festoon (Z. rumina) also has extensive red on the forewings.
Generally April and May with the possibility of a very small second brood in September.

Bom dia Luis,
Last week we have seen a few beautiful butterflies there, but not this one. What a beauty! Did you see it at Laguna da Salgados? Last weeks we were there twice.
Excellent sharpness, details and slendid colours. Taken from a very good low POV.
Excellent presentation of this fantastic butterfly not often seen here. Amazing sharp details and excellent depth of focus. Very nice composition,
