The genus Papilio is Latin for butterfly. The origin of the specie lowii is currently unknown.
Great Yellow Mormons are usually found within primary forest, but they often venture out into the surrounding areas.
Males patrol and defend their habitat from invading males while they look for receptive females. After mating, the females look for host plants to lay their eggs on. The caterpillars feed on the host plant until they form their pupae.
There are multiple generations each year making it possible to find adults year round.
The Great Yellow Mormon is sexually dimorphic which means the males and females look different from each other. The females are also polymorphic which means there is also variation in the way the females look.
