Orange Sulphur Butterfly Pays Bermuda A Visit

June 8, 2015

An Orange Sulpher butterfly was spotted at Spittal Pond over the weekend, representing what the Bermuda Audubon Society called “a very rare visitor to Bermuda.”

ButterfliesAndMoths.com says about the Orange Sulpher butterfly’s range, “Southern Canada to central Mexico, coast to coast in the United States except for the Florida peninsula. Comments: One of the most widespread and common butterflies in North America.

“Demonstrably secure globally, though it may be quite rare in parts of its range, especially at the periphery.”

  1. What excellent photos! Indeed, “a very rare visitor to Bermuda.” Maybe it had arrived here on Island via a shipment of hay or some other form of agricultural stocks e.g. flowers etc.?

      The sulphur butterfly has been in Bermuda for years. I see them around every summer.

    Clearly the fault of the OBA. Lets all march on Parliament to protest this unwanted pest!

    We have the second largest butterfly conservatory in the colony.
