〘Family- Pieridae〙Butterflies Introduction:
The butterflies family having 1100 species are found in Tropical Asia and Tropical Africa and some are even found in North America. Generally, it is visible worldwide with variations in colour and size.
〘Family- Pieridae〙Butterflies Description:
Six legs adult butterflies are medium sized with dark spots or dark edges on wings. When the pupa is developing, it’s colour is affected by the temperature. For example, if the temperature is cool, the colour of butterflies are dark.
The white coloured butterflies have toxins in its wings to save themselves from predators. So the predators can not eat or harm those toxic butterflies. The caterpillars are generally green or even yellow in colour with the hair formation on their body surface.
Well on the topic of eggs, the colour varies from white, yellow to red. These butterflies lay their eggs in single or rarely in groups. An interesting thing is the eggs have shapes even on the basis of it’s horizontal and vertical position.
〘Family- Pieridae〙Butterflies Habitat:
They are found in open areas where plants are often found, and it varies from desert plants to mountain rocks even. No, not in the forest; when I said plants it means meadows because open areas are needed for their survival.
〘Family- Pieridae〙Butterflies Life cycle:
The picture describes it all. There is no more explanation required for this life cycle. The complete process of metamorphosis is followed by Pieridae butterflies.
- Egg→ cocoon→ pupae→ caterpillars→ many generations of formations→ butterflies formed.
The next phase of this article holds the classification of Pieridae Family Butterflies. Here are the listed major classification of Pieridae Butterflies:
