Distribution and biological peculiarities in Armenia: The species is distributed from Southern Europe to Transcaucasia and Northern Iran. There are still debates about the taxonomic status of the species, as some authors consider it as a synonym of P. napi (Linnaeus, 1758). If envisioning the False Cabbage White as a distinct species, then the subspecies P. p. suffusa Sheljuzhko, 1931 should be listed as inhabiting Armenia. The species occupies wide variety of habitats, becide the high-mountains where it is replaced by close species P. bryoniae Hubner, 1806. The False Cabbage White uses wide variety of Cruciferae as host plants, and give up to four generations per year, having butterflies on wing from late March till late October.
Population dynamics: The species is common within most of the habitats and has increasing population trend during 2003-2013 (p<0.05), which is most probably justified by the fact that it is occupying niches, which are becoming opened due to habitat degradation and decline of more specialized species.
Conservation measures: The species is not included in the Global, National, and European Red Lists, as well as in CITES and Bern Conventions. Preliminary assessment of its conservation status suggests Least Concern, and since the species is distributed throughout all the Protected Areas, Emerald Sites, and Prime Butterfly Areas, there is no need for its conservation, but its monitoring can demonstrate the habitat degradation.
