Notes on Delias subnubila :
Similar to Delias wilemani, but lacking a large yellow patch in cellule 2, on the hindwing recto.
According to Chris Davenport, "many authors have treated conspicua as a synonym of subnubila which is variable on a geographic cline – light forms in the north, the TL of subnubila, figs 1-2&10 and darker forms in the south east that may represent conspicua".
