Taxonomy problems[edit]

Is the Lofty Bath White Pontia callidice or Synchloe callidice? Lepindex says thatSynchloe is the valid genus for Lofty Bath White. Is kalora to be accepted as a valid taxon or as a subspecies of callidice? LepIndex says kalora is a valid taxon. Hence the new scientific name for the Indian subspecies of Lofty Bath White, Pontia callidice kalora, is proposed as Indian Lofty Bath White Synchloe kalora. See the following links :-

  • Lepindex for genus Synchloe
  • Lepindex for genus Pontia
  • Lepindex for callidice
  • Lepindex for kalora

I propose to change it to Synchloe kalora if consensus exists.AshLin 19:40, 11 May 2006 (UTC)
