Has anybody anything more to say?

Down on a given page there is "Butterflies in nature" link, better to check the lowest pic.

I think it still looks more of Pieris bryoniae. Here Berlov's pic, just compare http://babochki.narod.ru/pi24pr.html.
The same strong veins and large "median cell" on sides of its head. As for the very cell, might call it wrong, please correct.

Right, moved.

Should be changed to Pieris melete?

28.01.2012 15:53, Dmitriy Pozhogin

Sorry, that's Pieris melete male.

27.01.2012 22:11, Peter Khramov

As the species gets databased after synchronizing the shot will be moved...

27.01.2012 14:17, Dmitriy Pozhogin

P. dulcinea male.

21.01.2012 20:53, Eugene Karolinskiy

Not sure whether it's P. melete or P. dulcinea... fifty/fifty... :)

Finally, to P. melete, "uncertain", or?

Assume, Evgeny might be right. I looked at http://www.euroleps.ch/seiten/s_art.php?art=pier_melete, so males happen to be like that. But it's hard to say for sure with no underside, albeit the small particulars still are in favor of Pieris.

Ok, I'll just be wandering outside the ring to wait for Alexandr's version as of that who identified.

Might it really have such mighty veins?

17.01.2012 18:12, Eugene Karolinskiy

Imho, this is Pieris of the napi group.

11.01.2012 11:37, Alexandr Zhakov

Not so plain, there is also Aporia hippia but this one is crataegi.

11.01.2012 1:48, Peter Khramov

So it's so plain then...

10.01.2012 22:57, Alexandr Zhakov

Aporia crataegi.
