The Cabbage White (Pieris rapae) is one of the most common butterflies in the United States and may be found virtually anywhere in the U.S. or Canada with the exception of south Florida and south Texas. The species was introduced to this country from Europe in the 1800s and is now one of the most familiar butterflies in many gardens and parks.
