[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pieris rapae is a small- to medium-sized butterfly species of the Yellows-and-Whites family Pieridae. It is also known as the Small Cabbage White and in New Zealand, simply as White Butterfly. The names "Cabbage Butterfly" and "Cabbage White" can also refer to the Large White.
It is widespread and populations are found across Europe, North Africa, Asia, and Great Britain. It has also been accidentally introduced to North America, Australia and New Zealand where it causes damage to cultivated cabbages and other mustard family crops. The caterpillar is referred to as the "imported cabbageworm" because it causes crop damage.

Thank for Silvio for determining the species.
Everything has been repaired.
Regards Jiri.
