Orange-barred Sulphur

Orange-barred Sulphur
The orange-barred sulphur is a large sulphur butterfly found in Florida, south Texas, Mexico, Central America and northern South America. There are usually 2 to 3 brood per year in Florida and the butterflies can be seen year round. Occasionally they migrate north, and in those cases usually have only one brood. The larval host plants are Cassia species in the pea family.
