Notes on Delias nieuwenhuisi :

Named Delias leucias roepkei by Nieuwenhuis & Howarth in 1970, this species was upgraded to specific status in 1990 and named after E J Nieuwenhuis. As can be observed by its original name, it is similar to Delias leucias but can be distinguished by considerably enlarged cream patch on the underside hindwing.
