View Full Version : Appias paulina distanti

I'm not sure if my dad posted this on the forums before for discussion.

In 2005 when I was on duty at SAFTI, I saw a female Appias paulina distanti that was trapped in the building. The specimen was very fresh, so I figured it was unlikely to have been blown in from Johor.

I, personally, have great difficulty in telling apart the wet season female form of Appias albina albina from Appias paulina distanti in the field. Whichever, it would be a very interesting discovery. No photo?

You do seem to be quite badly represented by that genus down there!

Quite affirmative. I have the specimen.

Your dad sent me a photo which you took on your handphone. Can't remember where I put it now. ;P

Edit :
There... managed to find it. ;P

Do we consider it as +1 for our SG checklist :)

Now I've seen photo, definately NOT an Appias albina albina, wet season form, as mentioned in previous posting!

PLEASE don't add too many +1s, I had nearly caught up!:bsmile:
