More about caterpillars, swallowtails and herbs

The most common swallowtail caterpillar in our area, the Black or Parsnip Swallowtail, is specific to plants in the Apiaceae family, i.e. carrot family, like parsley, fennel, carrots, etc. There are many other swallowtails, but none I find that feast on basil and mints.
