Also called the “small grass yellow,” this is a yellowish and black butterfly with a wingspan of 30-36 mm, females being typically larger. This butterfly is characterised by seasonal forms, each form differing from the other in markings and wing colouration. The broad-bordered lives in farmland, grassland, meadows and clearings, and along tracksides. Host plants in Lebanon include several species of acacia trees (Acacia spp.). This butterfly flies all throughout the year.
