Notes on Delias paoaiensis :

A rather rare species in collection.

Originally placed as a subspecies of D. nuydaorum, itself a quite recent discovery, it may be distinguished by the paler yellow marking in the subapical area of the underside of the forewing, and the hindwing.
Bearing in mind the isolation of its range from nuydaorum, its new status is not surprising.
