Union Jack (Delias mysis)

  • This is a commonly seen butterfly of the Northern Queensland tropical Rainforests.
  • The colouring is almost entirely white, in contrast of the brilliant red and yellow found on the underside.
  • Females have more extensive areas of black.
  • Females lay eggs in clusters on the leaves of mistletoe (which is the larval food plant).
  • The green larvae feed together in rows until they are ready to pupate.
  • The pupa is suspended by a silk girdle and several may be found together, on the underside of a leaf.
