Goatweed Leafwing
Anaea andria

Observation date: May 07, 2017
Submitted by: Taylor0861
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I only saw the butterfly briefly from approximately 15 feet away, hence the low quality photograph. The top of the wings were almost completely orange, with a slightly "hooked" top and a short tail. I didn't get a good look at the lower surface. It was almost full sun, approximately 68 degrees F.
