Brimstone on a thistle, Parkhill Inclosure, New Forest
The brimstone has a small pointed tip on each wing, and always rests with its wings closed (making it look a bit like a leaf). The female brimstone has a yellowish- to greenish-white wing. With a lifespan of 10-11 months this is one of the longest-lived of British indigenous butterflies. [Information from H. Hofmann and T.
