Subspecies and range of Delias mavroneria :

. mavroneria Fruhstorfer 1914 - Papua New Guinea

. flavidior Rothschild 1916 - Snow Mtns, Arfak Mtns, Papua



Notes on Delias mavroneria :

Very similar to Delias gabia, it was at one time considered to be a race of that species. However, it is to be distinguished by the absence of any orange suffusion or any submarginal spots on the underside hind wing.

Its range almost fits exactly with that of D.gabia.
