An egg is laid.

butterfly egg

Eggs of the small white cabbage butterfly are tiny, creamy yellow and pointed and laid singly, almost always on the underside of brassica/crucifer leaves.

Interestingly, this family of vegetables is said, if eaten to excess, to mess with the body's use of iodine and so lead to goiter. Hmm. I wouldn't worry about it. The good things we know about broccoli must surely outweigh this extremely slight risk—and I love my brussels sprouts!
