Belenois creona - males

The male African Common White.
In the male of this sp. the base colour of the under side of the hind-wing is yellow whereas the fore-wing white. In the picture below, compare the male anal claspers with the females' rounded bottom. In comparison with the male B. aurota, the upper side black margins are usually wider and the white apical patches smaller and less well defined.
