Leucidia brephos (Pieridae)

This little white butterfly is Leucidia brephos. Couldn't find it at first and on butterfliesofamerica.com it is only mentioned for Brazil (RJ), but still...

Smiles,
Klaas

I guess that ID could well be right. Even though the photo is not focused, the whiteness and posture of the specimen are quite distinctive. The species is also mentioned in "Butterflies of Suriname: a natural history."

Cheers, Auke :-)
