Summary1.The courtship behavior of the sulfur butterflies, Colias eurytheme and C. philodice (Lepidoptera, Pieridae), was studied in the field and in large outdoor flight cages. Experiments were performed to investigate the nature of releasers of male courtship behavior and to determine the basis of conspecific mate recognition by females.2.The courtship of these species is extremely brief and does not involve the elaborate displays characteristic of many other butterflies. Mature females… Expand
