West Virginia White
Pieris virginiensis W. H. Edwards, 1870

New York State Distribution [-]
This species is fairly widespread across the southern portion of the state with recent records from counties in the Catskills, Hudson Valley, and southern tier. There are also recent records from disjunct locations in Lewis County as well as poorly substantiated older records from St. Lawrence County. Since this species does occur in Vermont and northern Berkshire County, Massachusetts, it could turn up in adjacent parts of New York.

Global Distribution [-]
The range of the West Virginia White extends from north central Wisconsin and northern Michigan, eastward across southern Ontario and New York, to southern Vermont and New Hampshire, and western Massachusetts and Connecticut. The range also extends southwestward through the Appalachians to northern Georgia and Alabama (Opler and Krizek 1984).
