thanks bauycca, maybe it is this one as Wiki says starts it's flight in June instead of July, and I saw it in June, though it doesn't mention Spain in Wikipedia. What do you think Martini?Do you think the one with open wings I spotted is the same butterfly?
I think it is the other one, Melanargia lachesis and it is a Nymphalidae, not a Pieridae.
thanks Gerardo Aizpuru for your comment...
thanks Martini for the ID. The site says these butterflies emerge in July, but this was seen in Spain in the beginning of June. Another sign of climate change?
