[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Large White, Pieris brassicae, also called Cabbage Butterfly, Cabbage White, or in India the Large Cabbage White. White cabbage butterfly is a butterfly in the family Pieridae. The large white is a close relative to the Small White, pieris rapae
The Large White is common throughout Europe, North Africa, Asia even through the Himalayas.
For both males and females, the wings are white with black tips on the forewings. The female also has two black spots on each forewing. The underside of each wing is a pale greenish and serves as excellent camouflage when at rest. The black markings are generally darker in the summer brood. Its wingspan is 5 to 6.5 cm.

I hope that is the correct name of the butterfly
Otherwise please help for identifying the type.
