Butterfly of the family Pieridae, also known as the mustard butterfly. It shows the underside of the wings in which it combines yellowish green and white colors, with a black spot on the anterior wing. On the upperside of the wings do not have a green tone, but a checkerboard with more white than black. Pontia Daplidice resembles the spotted bath butterfly (Euchloe Crameri), although the latter has a most contrasted mosaic at the reverse wings. Adults prefer to fly in open spaces. The caterpillars feed on herbs from two families, Crucifera (hence the name of the mustard-butterfly) and Resedácea.
Spotted at a pine tree forest. Parque Nacional de Sierra de Guadarrama
