Moroccan Green-veined White (Pieris napi ssp. atlantis)

The Moroccan Green-veined White is a subspecies of the widespread Green-veined White (Pieris napi (L.)); it was described in 1925 and was restricted to the Middle Atlas Mountains in north-eastern Morocco.

This subspecies is now considered extinct; however, I cannot find any additional information so far.
