The Painted Jezebel, Delias hyparete, is a medium-sized butterfly of the family Pieridae, found in Asia. The Painted Jezebel has only one local host plant recorded to date, a common mistletoe. The adults can be readily seen fluttering tirelessly at tree-top levels during most of the daylight hours. They only descend to take nectar from flowers or to rest in the shaded areas towards the end of the day.
These butterflies are known for their beautiful combination of orange, black, cream and yellow. Some specimens are very vibrant in coloration, while others are more muted in appearance. The top of their wings are for the most part a monochromatic white with the underbody having the vibrant coloration.
