Euchloe guaymasensis

Euchloe guaymasensis is a species of butterfly in the family Pieridae known by the common names Sonoran marble and Sonoran white.[1] It is native to Sonora in Mexico and has been seen once in Arizona in the United States.[1]

This butterfly has a wingspan of 31 to 37 millimeters. The upperside is pale yellow. The forewing has a black tip and a black bar toward the front edge. The underside is marbled with green.[1]

This species occurs in rocky desert habitat. Its host plant is western tansymustard (Descurainia pinnata). Adults fly in February and March.[1]

This species was first collected in 1983 from a microwave relay 40 miles north of Guaymas in Sonora.[2]
