We moved them to A. stella
Do you want a subspecies page for them? Right now the Pieridae doesn't have subfamilies. Is that ok? Do you have an English name for them?

 
Utah Stella Orangetip, A. stella browningi
Thank you, that's right.

 
Anthocharis julia browningi
No, it's not, Nicky. Ssp. stella and ssp. browningi are conspecific under Anthocharis julia. A. julia was named before stella; and, therefore, has priority; placing stella as a ssp. under A. julia. This is confirmed by four character sets--adults, larvae, pupae, and DNA barcoding.
