Click image to enlarge

Base gallery. Upperside. Pinned specimen.

Photo, and identified by: Vasiliy Feoktistov. Image without retouching at the website

Date and time, location shooting/catching: 1996-09-04 00:00:00, Russia, Moscow reg., near Zheleznodorozhny city. leg. Feoktistov V.I.

Photographer's comment: Размах крыльев: 59 мм. В период развитой сельскохозяйственной деятельности человека в моём регионе численность этой белянки повсюду была очень высока и как везде она считалась вредителем (и до сих пор по инерции им считается). Но по мере того как сельское хозяйство у нас приходило в упадок сокращалась и численность вида (связываю это с прекратившимися посадками капусты, турнепса и др. крестоцветных в промышленных масштабах). Сейчас встретить настоящую капустницу у нас большая удача: всё больше попадается более мелкая репница Pieris rapae.

"Comments of the author" in this field must refer to a particular instance of that shown in the photo and the photo itself. In this case we are referring Comment successfully at the (whole text, except for size) and this information should be on the page, type in the "Commentaries." :)

Fixed. Well, he wrote his opus in the author's comments, where with time correction is not critical))).
More than once I told Peter that claimed half an hour to edit comments yet upon .... At dead center (

After the "author" the point is not to put down, in a hurry, I did not pay attention. Corrects late). In this case it is not so in principle, we about different. Correct still on Pieris napi Pieris rapae.

Irina, thanks for the comment, I agree that corrected.
Just want to recommend the correct word in the first bracketed part of the proposal upper case to lower. Here, "in the author's comments ( To avychki and capital" ..... between words author and the brackets is not the point (and a new offer Do not start with parentheses).So I take it as a part of the sentence, which in this case must begin with a lowercase letter.

Pieris rapae - Pieris rapae, napi - green-veined white. It would be necessary to correct in the comment author (quotation marks and capital letters for Russian names also are not necessary)
