|The Green-veined White Pieris napi is a butterfly of the Pieridae family.|
Appearance, behaviour and distribution:
Widespread across Europe, Asia including the Indian subcontinent and North America, it is found in Meadows, hedgerows and woodland glades but not as often in gardens and parks like its close relatives the Large and Small Whites which it is often mistaken for. Like other "white" butterflies, the sexes differ. The female has two spots on each forewing, the male only one. The veins on wings of the female are usually more heavily marked. The underside hindwings are pale yellow with the veins highlighted by black scales giving a greenish tint, hence Green-veined White! Unlike these two butterflies it rarely chooses garden cabbages to lay its eggs on, preferring wild crucifers.
