Pieridae - The Whites and Sulphurs
The Cabbage Butterfly is the most familiar of our Pierids, but many people also know the Clouded Sulphur, which is often seen in urban areas. With increasing awareness of butterflies, the Mustard White, once thought to be very scarce here, is now being regularly reported.
