Pima Orangetip,  Anthocharis pima  (LEP37)


     This species is common in the Sonora Desert in early springtime, where it feeds on wildflowers.  The Pima is as colorful as any flower.  The combination of bright yellow wings with intensely orange wingtips gives a memorable impression.  The orange patches are bounded by black markings, and the hindwings are green-marbled below.
