The black-veined white belongs to the order of daily butterflies (Lepidoptera), more precisely to the family of white butterflies (Pieridae). It is named after the colour of the wings, which is usually white. It is one of the most widely distributed butterflies, from Spain and North America to Europe, Asia (Kamchatka) and Japan.
The eggs are laid on the ventral side of the leaves of the plant Prunus spinosa or less frequently on the plant species of the family Rosaceae. Larvae hatch in July, feed in summer, and hibernate from September till March or April, when they develop into adult forms. They live from May to August.
In the Galichica National Park, it lives on natural and semi-natural grassy ecosystems, around water areas (puddles), up to high-mountain pastures at an altitude of up to 1600m.
