Psyche Butterfly

Leptosia nina georgi


Leptosia nina georgi Fruhstorfer, 1910, is the subspecies occurring in Luzon. Leptosia nina (Fabricius, 1793), the Psyche, is a small butterfly of the family Pieridae (the Sulphurs, Yellows and Whites) and is found in Southeast Asia and the Indian subcontinent. The upper forewing has a black spot on a mainly white background. The flight is weak and erratic and the body of the butterfly bobs up and down as it beats its wings. (Wikipedia)
