Green-veined White Pieris napi (Linnaeus, 1758) 
Status .....The Nottinghamshire status of the Green-veined White has showed no real change over the past century. It is still one of our most common and widespread butterflies, being found in a broad range of habitats, but the distribution map indicates that it is slightly less often recorded than the Small White.
