Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America freely available. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: This butterfly was perched next to Soldier Creek in Sioux County Nebraska. Based on the field marks it seems to be a Mylitta Crescent but seems to be out of range so I was hoping someone with more experience could verify that that's what this is. I'm just beginning to learn butterflies. Sorry for the image quality, it was taken with my phone.

Coordinator notes: While Mylitta Crescent does have striking similarity to this species it is extremely unlikely to have strayed so far. However, the Pale Crescent, especially when worn would also have this wing pattern and has been seen in this area before.
