  1. A few cabbage butterflies have recently showed up in my garden. Altho’ the common names are the same I think we may have a different species (Pieris rapae). Superficially at least they look the same. (Both females have 2 black spots on their wings.) From what I can tell you have both in the UK β€” P. rapae being a bit smaller. Confusion reigns (at least with me!)
