Common Jezebel Butterfly

Delias eucharis


Yellow , orange and black...striking colours. The colours also announce that the butterfly is unpalatable because of the food it ate as a caterpillar. Potential predators therefore know better than to treat it as breakfast. The first photo has been cropped.


Resting on a Polyalthia longifolis tree (with lots of Tailed Jay caterpillar at various stages) just outside my window. Urban residential area.


I find this site very useful for butterfly life cycles. This is the information on the Common Jezebel:
