Status in Rother: Fairly common and well distributed. Found in many Rother woodland glades and rides.
Habitat: Adults occur widely but tend to congregate in damp, lush vegetation where their foodplants are found, especially hedgerows, ditches, banks of rivers, lakes, and ponds, damp meadows, and woodland rides and edges. A range of wild crucifers are used as foodplants, such as Cuckoo-flower.
ID Tips: Distinguished from other whites by the underside of the wings which have double sets of dark green/grey veins.
