The White Angled Sulphur Butterfly, also called the White Angled-sulfur, is native from southern USA through Central America to the northern half of South America. Like a cabbage leaf when the wings are closed, the topside, rarely shown, is shining white with a short, lemon yellow bar on each forewing containing a small brown dot on the outside edge.
