Mustard White
Pieris oleracea

Observation date: June 29, 2015
Submitted by: Joe Bartok
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Wear and tear on wings due to misadventure, not the age of the butterfly
Status: Resident
Verified by: layberry
Verified date: August 29, 2015
Coordinator notes: Given the observer's note, "wear and tear due to misadventure, not age", I have to agree that the date is too late for a Pieris virginiensis, it must be an early second-generation oleracea.
