The Small Cabbage White Butterfly larva is probably the most destructive of all of the caterpillars, devouring cabbages and other cruciferous crops all over the world. The adults are distinguished from the Large White by their smaller and less pronounced black markings. The adult male has one spot on the wing and the female has two - both have a pale yellow underside to the wings. It is widespread across Europe, North Africa, Asia, and Great Britain. In Britain, it has two flight periods, April�May and July�August early September. Picture taken Hinxworth, Hertfordshire 22nd July 2011
