Orange-barred Giant Sulphur (LEP41) Phoebis philea


     Like its relatives, this big beauty flies rapidly but dallies at flowers or to lay eggs on sennas.  The upperside is rich lemon-yellow, with a bright orange bar on the forewing.  Any combination of mottled pink and orange, with pearly spots in the middle of the hindwing, may be shown by the variable underside.  The female is deep yellow with black marks on an orange band across the bottom of the hindwing.
