|Southern small white|
The length of the forewings is 19–25 mm. The butterfly flies from March to October depending on the location.
Compared to Pieris rapae, the cabbage-pest small white, the forewing spot is larger and squarish or even crescent-shaped rather than round. The apex marking extends further down the outer margin, reaching as far as the spot.
Until recently P. mannii has been confined to South Europe, Asia Minor, Morocco and Syria. It was first found north of the Alps in France and in Germany in 2008 and has since gradually extended its range in these two countries. It was first sighted in the southern Netherlands in 2015.
