Are the two photos immediately above really Pieris bryoniae or simply dark forms of Pieris napi? Certainly, when, flying, the two butterflies looked
completely different from any Pieris napi that I had ever seen, being much yellower and darker - something that doesn't  show up very much on the photos.
