The Brown-Veined White Butterfly (Belenois aurota) is a medium-sized common butterfly in East Africa.
The Brown-Veined White Butterfly has white wings with veins outlined in dark brown. There is a slight patch of yellow at the tip of its wings. Its wingspan is 40-45 millimetres (1.5-2 inches). Its eyes are bright and mottled.
They are migratory butterflies and travel en masse (in large numbers) to their destination to lay their eggs.
