Mistook this for a Green-veined White butterfly. From Wikipedia: Striped Albatross, Appias libythea is a small butterfly of the Family Pieridae (Yellows and Whites). The Striped Albatross gets its name from the male butterfly, which is white with prominent black veins on the underside. The female is dark dusted with yellow wing bases. Hostplant: Cleome rutidosperma (Purple Cleome) http://www.butterflycircle.com/checklist....
I had two spottings and both were on an open space covered by weeds. I've never seen them at the backyard garden. Actual location of spottings was in Biñan Laguna, Philippines.
