Great Orange Tip Butterfly - Hebomoia glaucippe (Topside)

Scientific Name:
Hebomoia glaucippe
Shipping Restrictions:


This is one of the biggest and most handsome Whites in existence, with a wing-span of up to four inches. Common though the species is - and represented in every collection of exotic butterflies - it attracts deserved attention owing to its size and the striking orange triangle at the apex of the fore-wings.

The species is very variable, numerous forms having been described. Within its range several interesting, insular races exist. Seasonal variation is equally pronounced, specimens demonstrated by the shape and size of the orange apex triangle, and the shade of the ground-color. The butterflies frequent the edge and tracks of the forest, visiting flowers on which they sit in the manner of the Whites, with wings somewhat open. They spend the night in thick shrubs. Flying mainly in the morning, they congregate - sometimes in considerable numbers - in damp places during the heat of day. This habit is demonstrated also by some Europeans species, notably the Green-veined White.
