Cobb Co., GA, USA - May 10-30, 1999 Larva, Pupa, New Adult
This is a European species which was accidentally introduced to the new world in the mid 1800's. It has since become a common sight in the meadows and gardens of Georgia. It can also be a formidable garden pest, since its larvae eat cabbage, and other plants in the mustard family. It's a very hearty species: I've seen adults on the wing as late as mid-December!
