Notes on Delias kazueae : 

A recently discovered species about which very little is known. It comes from the very small island of Taliabu. Rather rare in collections, especially females. 

In February, a female Delias kazueae has been pictured on Peleng island by the naturalist photographer Alpian Maleso. This discovery enlarges the distribution of this species, which may be also present on Banggai island.
