So the napi has that as well. They say that the melete has it more and darker from its topside and instead lighter/fewer from the underside. Can't see though the distinctive difference looking at photos...

Question to all. According to Kourentzov the underside's venation of both hind and forewings has dark brown or greenish lurid fringe, the species is Pieris napi. Here we have P. melete. Anyone can comment why it's melete and what's the difference?
