|Brimstone Gonepteryx rhamni (Linnaeus, 1758)|
Status ..... This is one of our most familiar and readily identifiable butterflies, heralding the arrival of Spring for many recorders and indeed, is a true sign of warmer weather. Because the male is so distinctive and instantly recognisable, the Brimstone is also one of our better recorded species and the eagerness to record the first butterfly of the year, means we have an accurate picture of distribution.
