African Migrant Butterfly Catopsilia florella

African Migrant butterfly
A smaller yellow butterfly than the Cleopatra, the African Migrant butterfly has a pink-red narrow border and tiny spots mid-wing (similar to but different from the Clouded Yellow). The male (above) is a pale yellow and the female, like the Brimstones, is pale greeny-yellow although they are not the Brimstone angular shape. As the name suggests, they originate from Africa, but they have now settled also on the Canary Islands.
