Details for Sighting Record 1082896

Date of Observation: May 30, 2016
Submitted By: anna_holmes
Species: Speyeria cybele Great Spangled Fritillary
Specimen Type: Photograph
Observation Notes: Although we see many Gulf Fritillary butterflies (we grow the host plant), this is the first time we have seen this type of fritillary. Although I believe it is a male from the lighter spot on its wing, that appears absent in the female, this fritillary was quite large. We do have violets in one area of the yard under a tulip poplar tree.
