Our 2023 fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. Your support is vital to the project. Please make a recurring or one-time donation to sustain this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Coordinator notes: Your suggested ID is also correct...it has been accepted that P. zephyrus is a subspecies of the same species, Polygonia gracilis in the West. This is a male of the summer flight which has a more brownish colored underside than grayish as the later season flight displays. Mike
