AppearanceDorsal wing surfaces in males are bright yellow with broad and dark peripheral melanic margins, but in females the same wing surfaces are white with paler brown margins. Ventral wing coloration in this species is unique among sulphur butterflies in several ways. First, the melanic wing margins of the dorsal wing surface are mirrored on the ventral wing surface in both sexes. This is the only example of such a color pattern in the coliadines. Second, although the female dorsal wing surfaces are white except for the margins, both sexes have pattern-less yellow ventral wing coloration.
