GREEN-VEINED WHITE Pieris napi

A more sedentary and rural species than P. brassicae  and P. rapae, although there is certainly much movement of indivifuals and a wide tolerance of habitat causing considerable overlap, and confusion, with P.rapae especially. Widely distributed; favours damper, lusher habitats than P. rapae, and extends quite high up into the hills into the east. On the other hand,  it also occurs in town and city parks.
