No subspecies

. surprisa - Sulawesi




Notes on Delias surprisa :

Close to Delias belladonna, this species is to be identified by the greenish-grey base colouring of the upperside, and by the large discal and submarginal spots on the underside hindwing.

The female is hard to find. 

During my trips to Sulawesi, I never seen any Delias surprisa, it seems to be the hardest species to see on this island.
