Coordinator notes: I considered Leptophobia tovaria, Two-jutted Greeneyed-White but absent the lines. After a lot of searching with no exact match I now believe that the closest match is Appias drusilla, Florida White, though most on BAMONA don't seem to have this much black trim on top, the side view is very much a Florida White, and other websites show this species with this much black trim. Thus my choice, though always open to suggestions from other coordinators and experts.
