Wood White

The wood white has a restricted distribution in the eastern part of the Burren and on the west side of Lough Corrib. Most commonly it is found on fractured limestone pavement, herb-rich vegetation and low scrub.

The current status and future prospects for limestone pavement in Ireland are assessed as poor. For this reason, the wood white is categorised as near threatened in Ireland.
