Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. 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: Porch light. Very dark overcast, 58 degrees, and ground soaked from the night rain. Total length 20 mm. For the past week, many Swordsman Darts and Fringed Darts have been swarming together early in the morning around my house front porch light, but this one was at the old storage trailer porch light. On this dart I noticed a difference from others in the orbicular area. There are black squares here surrounded by golden veins.
