Green-veined White - Pieris napi

Bradley & Fletcher No.: 1551
Agassiz No.: 58.008

The Green-veined White can be found throughout the countryside, but prefers damp, sheltered areas. It breeds on wild crucifers and is not a pest of cabbage crops. The dusky vein markings on the undersides of the wings are variable in colour and make it well camouflaged when it roosts among vegetation.
