Zerynthia rumina, the Spanish festoon, is a butterfly belonging to the family Papilionidae. It is a widespread species in Spain and frequents most habitats. Found in 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. The Spanish festoon also has extensive red on the forewings. Order: Lepidoptera, Family: Papilionidae, Genus: Zerynthia, Species: Zerynthia rumina (Linnaeus, 1758).
