Pieris krueperi Staudinger, 1860  

—There are no published records for this species, however amateur entomologist Christopher Orpin reported, in a personal communication, a sighting of P. krueperi   above Kotor, along the road from the town to the church of St. Jovan on August 5th 2016. Since no specimens were sampled, which could allow positive identification, the species is not included in the list. Research should be done around the town of Kotor since the steep cliffs above the town seem to be a possible habitat. Of several recorded host plants (Ziegler 2017) only Alyssoides utriculata   (L.) Medik. has been reported ( Rohlena 1942) from the surroundings of Kotor.
