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: Fair, 80°; perching on flat rocks and vegetation perches under 12" high in trail on dry barren ridge that has a history of burning. Small pitch pine and Virginia pine close by. Spun into the air 3 times with another individual when it came near. I never saw the other land or any mating. Note the irregular median band and spot above the tail area.
