It doesnt look like any other cloudless or clouded sulphurs ive seen anywhere else- but we’d just like to know the definite name if you know… thanks!

Hi Brianne,
The Cabbage Butterfly, Pieris rapae, is one of our commonest butterflies, but it is not native. It was accidentally introduced to Quebec from Europe in the 1860s and quickly spread across the continent, reaching Los Angeles in the late 19th Century. The green caterpillars feed on cabbage and other wild and domestic plants in the family Brassicacaea. The Cabbage Butterfly is one of the Whites in the same family as the Sulphurs, Pieridae.
