Observation date: June 12, 2020
Submitted by: rapids
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: None.
Status: Resident
Verified by: jmgesell
Verified date: April 01, 2022
Coordinator notes: It would be a little late in the season for P. virginiensis, making this individual more likely P. oleracea, which looks very similar from this angle. An early spring form of P. rapae (Cabbage White) can also be largely unmarked, however this individual’s appearance seems more c/w P. oleracea.
