Euchloe belemia   Green-striped White

Euchloe belemia top Euchloe belemia underwing

We saw this in various habitats and were able to inspect the butterfly at close quarters after catching one in the net. The top view is unspectacular but the underwing which give the insect its name is really quite striking.
