The Black-veined White (Scientific name: Aporia crataegi) is a large butterfly of the Pieridae family. It is found in orchards and bushes throughout most of Europe except Northern Europe, North Africa, temperate Asia, Korea and Japanand Israel.

It usually feeds on plants in the genus Prunus. Flight time is between April and July, size is between 56mm and 68mm, and is normally found an altitudes between 500m and 2,000m. Caterpillars live communally on uncut branches of the food plant at first, before dispersing in the later developmental stages to other parts of the tree.
The image herein was taken in the kaçkar dağı mountains, east Turkey, about 2000 m above see level.
