Aphrissa neleis

Observation date: July 27, 2016
Submitted by: Sandykoi
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Homestead Air Base Reserve Park has numerous non-native ornamental tree species, including Lysiloma, host plant for the Pink Spot Sulphur. Today was sunny (87 degrees) but also windy and this individual flew to the ground and held on to the grass. I counted 8 individuals, but only captured this one with my phone because it was ground level!
