Meadow east of Getå.
Open meadow making it good for the species, and deciding that the wing spot angle is above 90 degrees, this individual, if any, should be a good candidate for the species.

I know you'll ask: How did you separate them from Wood White..?!
Iiiihh...well, I'm not sure if I can. Unfortunately the pattern of the wing tips is not as conclusive as I had hoped for, before getting to see the two species in real life.
Two animals were reported on this meadow a few days before, and I kind of sense that the spot-angle could be wider than 90 degrees and they looked smaller than the other wood whites we had just seen along a forest road...I'll probably degrade them to the uncertain sp-level in a short while, but for the moment I would like to feel the joy of having registered both species. Lifers both!
