Order, Family, Common Name, as always.
Bonus:
What term describes the condition suffered by the insect in the image? (hint: variation in the wing pattern of a butterfly species which is different in some way to the normal pattern)
How is that variation caused?

Well I think it should be: Lepidoptera Papillionidae, Swallowtail Butterfly.
I have no clue about the condition though.

Yes, you are correct! (however, -1 for spelling Papilionidae incorrectly :P)
Aberration - can be caused by extreme temperature changes or a fungal/bacterial infection during the pupal stage

This is Syrphidae(Hover/flower flies) in Diptera. Myiasis is parasitic infection of a mammal by a fly maggot. 2 other families that can do this is Callophoridae(blow flies) and Stratiomyidae(Soldier Flies)
