Evolution and coadaptation of thermoregulatory behavior and wing pigmentation pattern in pierid
The dainty sulphur is a very small pierid
butterfly that normally ranges from Florida and Texas, to southern California.

butterflies and their cruciferous foodplants.
The ecology of pierid
butterflies: dynamics and interactions.
The species experiences favorable periods some years when numbers of the pierid
are consistently present at the station, especially from June to August, but out of this period it can mostly be recorded by passing individuals in flight (even disregarding visits to flowers in some cases) or by ovipositing females.
Several accounts suggest that damaged plants in the Brassicaceae are more susceptible to oviposition and feeding by specialist herbivores such as diamondback mot hs, pierid
butterflies, flea beetles, and cabbage root flies (Vaughn and Hoy 1993, Baur et al.
Relative densities of pierid
models and acridid mimics.
butterflies with similar life histories are readily recaptured at distances greater than 1 km (Baker 1968; Jones et al.

Female-biased dispersal in relation to availability to local larval host plants has been suggested in another pierid
butterfly, Colias philodice eriphyle (Tabashnik 1981).
