Life cycle of butterflies in Provence

The Provence Orange Tip (Anthocharis euphenoides Staudinger, 1869)

The Provence Orange Tip (Anthocharis euphenoides Staudinger, 1869), family of Pieridae, is present in South-West Europe (Portugal, Spain, South of France and center of Italy). This butterfly has a very marked sexual dimorphism: the male is yellow with a red-orange apex on its forewings with a thin black band, while the female is white with an orange apex and a black dot. The under-side of the male’s hindwings is slightly marbled-green. The single generation flies between late March and early June. This species overwinters as a pupa. Eggs are laid singly on the host plant (Biscutella laevigata).
