We identified this Salmon Caper Butterfly, Madais fausta fausta, on image 1g of The Butterflies of Jordan where it states: ” The Salmon Caper Butterfly is a rather migratory species with a distribution con- fined to the Jordan Valley and the upper Mediterranean zone. … It seems that it has two broods, one in spring and another towards the end of July.“
