Cryptic Wood White

Cryptic Wood White

This is Ireland's most recently-discovered butterfly. It was first thought to be the very similar Wood White, then found to be different and believed be Réal's Wood White. Further analysis resulted in the Réal's Wood White species being spilt, and our one is now called Cryptic Wood White. In the British Isles it is only found in Ireland and is quite widespread, when the weather allows.
