Male Yellow Tip

Yellow Tip (Anthocharis scolymus, 黄尖襟粉蝶).

Only the males have the yellow tips on the apical part of the forewings, which provide the English name. I do not see these butterflies very often in Changsha but have seen a few among the buttercups and other wild flowers in Wangling Park over the past week.
