White Angled Sulphurs are very strong flyers and are often seen high over the canopy.
They are found in South America, Central America, and southern North America.
Their ventral side wings are very leaf like, while their dorsal sides are notable due to the small yellow spots they contain.
They fly year round in the tropical parts of their range and from August to December in the north.
Diet: caterpillars feed on Senna spectabilis.
Wingspan: 7.0–9.0 cm / 2.75 - 3.5"
The single biggest threat to butterfly survival is habitat destruction!!
