It can be distinguished by the large submarginal white spots on the underside of the forewing (cream in the female). The underside of the hindwing differs markedly between the sexes. The male is predominantly white and yellow with orange submarginal spots, whilst the female is black with a dusting of yellow and the same orange spots.
