COMMON BRIMSTONE

Details

The Brimstone is a beautiful insect and a grand master of camouflage. The pale greenish underside, raised wing-veins and falcate wing tips combine to disguise the butterfly as a leaf, making it near invisible when at rest under bramble or ivy. The males are bright yellow in colour and it is widely held that the species was the inspiration for the name ‘butterfly’. The females are more greenish-white in colour, with an orange spot in the centre of each wing. The undersides of the wings are greenish, with the prominent veins
