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!
Coordinator notes: excellent! you photographed enough sleepy oranges that finally you got a Tailed Orange. Backlit as it is, you can see the blackened dorsal veins (see Glassberg, 2017, p. 70). this, the summer form, has a reduced tail - just an angle, really - and it seems mostly missing from this worn individual. your bottom photo has the Tailed Orange and a Sleepy Orange below it.
