Catopsilia, emigrant, butterfly
Catopsilia sp.


This is genus of butterflies in the Pieridae family that are known as the Emigrants. The antennae of these butterflies are longer and stouter than that of the Colias species, but shorter than those of other species in the Pieridae family. They are mostly found in Old World tropics, where they can gather and form large migratory flocks. These butterflies are fast and powerful fliers.
