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: Found early in the morning coming to fruit that was put out mostly for visiting birds. Poor light and a faded individual makes the ID harder. I've considered "telamonius menus" and "brasiliensis sulanus". Not all Pale-Owl Butterflies have a prominent white patch on VFW, and I believe that the size of the dark HW patch and the wide, dark FW band support "telamonius" over "brasiliensis"
