The Phoebis avellaneda is sometimes called Red-splashed sulphur or Orange-washed sulphur. It is a fast and high flyer, as are most butterflies in the tropical family Pieridae. This rare species is endemic to Cuba and was featured on two Cuban postage stamps. Its host plants include hibiscus, whiteweed, and some species of cassia.
