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!
Coordinator notes: What makes this coronis and not hesperis is that it does not have 1) heavy black marks on the wings and 2) the basal area of the wings is not dark and 3) the date is too early for hesperis. It is not S. edwardsii because it doesn't have a solid black border around the wings along with the fact it is the wrong tone of orange for it and also S. aphrodite so the only species that fits is coronis. Whew......you should be able to see those others in El Paso County too....later in June and July. Mike
