BUTTERFLYING IN SOUTH SULAWESI (2) – Pieridae

Sulawesi is an island in Indonesia.  It is the world’s 11th largest island.  There are about 560 known species of butterflies.  239 of them (>40%) are endemic to the region.  We visited the place around end September.  The weather had been dry since March.  It was definitely not the peak season for butterflies.  We were not able to find the interesting Delias sp.  Still, we were able to find some interesting butterflies.
