Why isn't it a small white?

Given we don't have a view of the underside of the wings, which, as I understand it, have the green veins, how do we tell its not a small white? I guess the location's name 'bridge...' implies water and green veined white apparently likes damp places ....

Is there another photo showing the underside of the wings?
