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: Raised from larvae found on Pink Pom-poms! Male seemed like fewer of these beauties this year. Enough to keep the population going though and Great to find stuff this late in the season. I think these are seen a lot earlier in the Palm Springs area. Here at the coast there a late season treat! Mostly Mild days so far this fall, only one cold snap with good rain near us. More is needed in this dry desert Climate. Take care my friend hope all is well! We grow lots of host and Larval food plants. Have very good luck attracting lots of species!
