I have been working and studying with Pieridae for a while and I find them very interesting. I have had one big question for a while and I was wondering if any of you have worked with them and can answer this for me. Gonepteryx is a genus I’m sure anyone from Europe is familiar with. There is plenty of information on Gonepteryx that I could find.
Anteos is a different story. I can barely find any publications on this species other then the extreme basics like: host plant, range, and wing span. Im very curious about how are these 2 genus related. The adults of this species look very similar. They both have the English name “Angled Sulphur.” G. rhami and A. maerula both share the name “Brimstone.” Do these species share any relation other than being Sulphurs? Are there life stages similar?
I have also had both species- G. rhami and A. clorinde.
