Pine White

Pine Whites (Neophasia menapia) are fairly common butterflies in forested regions of the Western United States.

The species name reflects the fact that the caterpillars feed on pine and other fir tree needles.

Adults nectar on flowers in their territory. They tend to stay settled on flowers longer than the average white butterfly, making them easy to photograph.

The picture shows a top view of the wings. The curved border line on the top of the wing that starts at the body is a key identification mark.
