Delias eucharis

Description:

The Common Jezebel (Delias eucharis) is a medium sized pierid butterfly.It is one of the most common species in the genus Delias.

Habitat:

It is commonly seen in gardens. The females can be seen flying amongst the trees in search of its foodplants, while the males are more frequently observed visiting flowers for nectar or mud-puddling. It rests with its wings closed exhibiting the brilliantly coloured underside.

Notes:

It has bright coloration to indicate the fact that it is unpalatable due to toxins accumulated by the larvae from the host-plants.
