ORANGE-TIP Anthocharis cardamines

A species generally associated with river valleys, stream sides, wet flushes in and outside woods, and edges of damp woodlands; it is capable of penetrating quite high up into hilly moorland and also along river valleys almost into city centres. Its distribution seems to have been fairly stable during the three periods. Its habitat requirements often coincide with those of P.napi although it is not quite such a generalist.
