    Abstract

    Kajian biologi dan ekologi ke atas Papilio demoleus L. dan Papilio polytes L. (Lepidoptera: Papilionidae) telah dijalankan di makmal dan di lapangan. Kesesuaian empat spesies tumbuhan [limau nipis, Citrus aurantifolia [(Christm.) Swingle]; limau purut, Citrus hystrix DC.; limau madu, Citrus reticulata Blanco dan daun kari, Murraya koenigii (L.) Sprengle] sebagai tumbuhan perumah rama-rama P. polytes dibandingkan dimakmal dan didapati Papilio polytes betina lebih memilih C. Studies on the biological and ecological aspects of Papilio demoleus L. and Papilio polytes L. (Lepidoptera: Papilionidae) were carried out both in the laboratory and in the field. The suitability of four rutaceous species [Citrus aurantifolia [(Christm) Swingle], Citrus hystrix DC., Citrus reticulata Blanco and Murraya koenigii (L.) Sprengle] as host plants for P. polytes was compared. Females of P. polytes preferred C. reticulata and C. aurantifolia (P < 0.01) as oviposition sites.
