Cloudless Sulphur


Cloudless sulphur butterflies (Phoebis sennae eubule) usually arrive in southern Illinois later in the summer.


Red flowers, like this red salvia, attract their attention. They prefer tubed flowers, and lay their eggs on members of  pea family.


Their wingspan ranges from 2 1/4 to 3 1/8 inches.


 They migrate back south in the fall.
