Maharashtra has become the first State in the country to have a ‘State butterfly.’ Government of Maharashtra has declared the Blue Mormon (Papilio polymnestor) as the State butterfly.

The Blue Mormon is a large, swallowtail butterfly found primarily in Sri Lanka and India, mainly restricted to the Western Ghats of Maharashtra, South India and coastal belts. It may occasionally be spotted in the Maharashtra mainland between Vidarbha and Western Maharashtra.
