The orange tip butterfly (Anthocharis cardamines) is a butterfly in the family Pieridae. The orange tip is found across Europe, and eastwards into temperate Asia as far as Japan. The common name derives from the bright orange tips of the male's forewings. The female lacks the orange and is often mistaken for one of the other 'white' butterflies.

Scientific Name: Anthocharis cardamines (Linnaeus, 1758)
Common Names: Orange Tip Butterfly, Orange Tip; [German] Aurorafalter; [French] L' Aurore
