common dotted border.
This is a second or ...pardon even third image of the common dotted border I am presenting here. The difference is that this individual has slightly unusual coloration as you can see.
The Common Dotted Border Butterfly or Mylothris Agathina Agathina can be found in most of South Africa. It is a butterfly of the Pieridae family It is common along the coastal forests and in wooded country areas. Its habitats are forest edges, parks, gardens, flatlands, coasts and hillsides. The wingspan is 50 to 60 millimetres for males and 52 to 65 mm for females.
