Host plants are usually herbaceous or bushy with most known hosts largely restricted to a few species in one family, CRUCIFERAE. Eggs are laid on the host plant singly. There are two to four flights each year with the approximate flight time APR1-SEP30 in the northern part of the range and MAR1-OCT31 in the southern part of their range (Scott 1986). Listed as a subspecies of Pieris chloridice by some sources (Scott, 1986).
