|Another rare species of my fields,the most beautiful pieridae for me of my country.|
Pontia edusa, the eastern Bath white, is a butterfly in the family Pieridae.
Pontia edusa is a small to medium-sized migrant butterfly, with a wingspan reaching about 45 mm. The upperside of the wings is white, with black stains on the top of the forewing and hindwing. The hindwing undersides have greenish-grey spots. The butterfly is nearly identical to Pontia daplidice. Investigations of the genitals are the only way to distinguish between these two types.
The adults fly from March to October with two to four generations depending on the latitude. The eggs are laid singly and have an incubation period of seven days. The caterpillars are present from May. They are greyish-greenish, with black dots and broad yellow stripes, quite similar to the larva of the cabbage butterfly (Pieris brassicae). The larvae feed on Resedaceae species. Pontia edusa hibernates in the chrysalis stage.
t is found from the south east of Europe (southern France, Italy, Corsica, Sardinia) up to central Europe and the Middle East in Iran and Iraq. It is a migrant which can also be encountered in Belgium, Holland, northern Germany and Poland, in the Baltic states and in southern Sweden and Norway.This species can be found in any open grassy or flowery areas, in stony or rocky places and in roadsides, especially where the host plants grow, at an altitude of 0â€“2,300 metres (0â€“7,546 ft).

This Bath White is slightly different from the one we see here in India, Luciano. Its beauty lies in its outer wings which you have captured effectively in this image.

It is human nature that we find the face in every aspect, here after looking at the wings there my effort was to find its face or head but it seems, it was poked in the flower. A beautiful click.

First time that I see a Pontia edusa!
So thank you very much for sharing it here. It look similar to the P. daplidice. I do not think that we have this one here in Spain.
