Great Southern White Butterfly (Ascia monuste)
It’s not just a black and white world in your garden with these lively fliers. The female forms of this butterfly show shades of smoky gray in warmer temperatures. Both the male and females have a black zigzag pattern on the margins of their upper wings.
They are low, kind of lazy fliers that will migrate if the area becomes over crowded or food source becomes scarce. These butterflies are most popular in the southern coastal areas. They are a great addition to any southern butterfly garden.
