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: Hi Mike! This sighting goes back to 6-8-2015 but the frit was not identified when submitted. The ventral forewing pattern looks like the fritillary I submitted recently from 6-1-2020. Can you tell if they are the same type? Thanks for all your help! ~ Char

Coordinator notes: Yes Char....the same but probably looks different because this is a female and the other was a male. In your area on the prairie, you will get only two frit species.....Edwards (Argynnis (Speyeria) edwardsii) and the Regal (Argynnis (Speyeria) idalia) which I think you had a picture of you submitted earlier, if I am remembering correctly? It was a worn male (I'll check my verified sightings). Take care, Mike
