Buttercup Butterfly - 5x4 Riker Mount
Buttercup Butterfly (Phoebis trite)
- Wingspan: 1 3/4 - 2 1/4 inches
- Origin: Central & South America
The Buttercup Butterfly is similar to the Phoebis philea (Orange-Barred Sulphur) in that it has bright yellow coloring; you won't find a brighter yellow butterfly! However, it lacks the 2 orange dots and is a little smaller in comparison. The Buttercup is also a paler shade of yellow, but still just as vibrant and lovely!
