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.

The wood white (Leptidea sinapis) is a butterfly of the Pieridae family. It is found in Europe and eastwards across the Caucasus, Asia Minor, the Middle East, Middle Asia, Kazakhstan and south Siberia to the Baikal region.

The common brimstone (Gonepteryx rhamni) is a butterfly of the Pieridae family. It lives in Europe, North Africa and Asia. Across much of its range, it is the only species of its genus, and is therefore simply known locally as the brimstone. The name "butterfly" is believed to have originated from the brimstone — which was called the butter-coloured fly by early British naturalists.
