Pieris [genus] (4/3)
brassicae [soort]

Pieris brassicae is a very common resident. The Dutch resident population is often supplemented by migrating individuals, although large swarms of migrating butterflies have become much rarer. According to the Dutch Monitoring Scheme, numbers have declined moderately since 1990. Various Brassicaceae species are used as larval foodplant. It flies in two or three generations from May until September, and hibernates as a pupa.
