  • Life History of the Painted Jezebel (Delias hyparete metarete)



    Painted Jezebel is common throughout Singapore with occurrence in multiple habitats in both nature reserves and urbanised areas. This is likely due to its host plant, Dendrophthoe pentandra, being a common mistletoe on many trees in these areas. The adults can be readily seen fluttering tirelessly at tree-top levels during most of the daylight hours. They only descend to take nectar from flowers or to rest in the shaded understorey towards the later part of the day.

    Hi Dr Seow,

    Is this Telicota besta? The colour seemed a little off, but I reckon its from age. Thank you!
