As the name implies the Appalachian Tiger Swallowtail only flies in the range of the Appalachian Mountains. It can be viewed only in the spring [cite web |title=Appalachian Tiger Swallowtail (Pterourus Papilio appalachiensis) |url= |Publisher= North Carolina Butterflies |year=2005 |accessdate=2008-09-28] . It has one brood a year in the spring. The spring brood is much larger than the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail in which is shares much of it's range [cite web |title= Appalachian Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio appalachiensis) |url= |year=2005 |accessdate=2008-09-28] .
