As for Turkey and its "residents":[]=6963&oc=or&om=or&oz=or&ocou=or&country[]=1012&size=s&perpage=50&order=lat, that means every beast can be there. Goes to Pieris brassicae, without gender.

Hard to guess its gender indeed. Suggest male, cause there might be seen at least partly dark spot through the hole in its forewing, if female.

Vasily, be brave, there can be only Pieris brassicae. :) Male or female? Can't say with this angle. :(

Maybe, Pieris brassicae (male)? It lives in Egypt, and should be in Turkey then, I think.

Guys, how come this one is undetermined still? Is it something tough or unusual?
