Species: D. hyparete
Binomial name: Delias hyparete (Linnaeus, 1758)
Other Names: Painted Jezebel
Special feature: The Painted Jezebel is white above, with the veins dusted in the outer areas. The female is more heavily dusted with black than the male. The basal half of the underside of the hindwing is bright yellow and the termen has a bright red marginal border. The veins are dusted with black.
It is believed that the brightly coloured underside serves as a warning pattern to predatory animals. (http://www.butterflycircle.org)
