Notes on Delias pulla :

An extremely rare species, of which, until recently, only one specimen had been found to my knowledge. This specimen, taken by E. Mayer in  August-September 1928, is in the Museum, Tring.

The nimivinye subspecies differs from D. pulla pulla by having slightly larger subapical spots on the underside forewing.
