A resident species often occurring sparingly or fairly commonly in domestic gardens but it is much less frequent elsewhere. Widespread. Double-brooded flying mainly from early May to early July and again from late July to late September. However, adults have been seen in every week from the third week of April to mid October. Larvae feed on many unspecified species of cruciferous plants including cabbage, horse-radish and cuckoo flower. (Pratt, 2011).
