The wood white

Leptidea sinapis


Leptidea sinapis, the wood white, is a butterfly of the Pieridae family. It is often overlooked along with other members of the white butterfly family. It is creamy-white with grey tips to the upper-forewings, and has grey veins on both upper and hindwings. The wood white seems to show a preference for rough, un-managed pastures and shaded woodland edges, and the pictured adult was spotted while foraging on ditrichia plants, in a mountain meadow, in Tzoumerka mountains, Epirus region, Greece.
