What is the animal Zegris known for?

Zegris is a genus of butterflies in the family Pieridae, also known as orange tips.

They are known for their distinctive wing patterns, with white or yellow backgrounds and black or orange tips.

They are also characterized by their clubbed antennae and bushy palpi.

One of the most well-known species of Zegris is the sooty orange tip (Zegris eupheme), which has a range that extends through southern Europe, southwest Europe, northern Africa, East Kazakhstan and Asia Minor.

It inhabits open flowery grasslands among hills and is affected by global warming, which seems to be extending its range to the north.
