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!
Date notes: This is the day it emerged from its cocoon. I found the cocoon on the ground outside my house around 5/14/2020

Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: It was still in its cocoon yesterday afternoon and I saw it on the branch of the geranium I secured its cocoon to today (5/22) at 1:40. Weather has been very wet here for the last 5 days and we have had the heat set to 69 in our house.
