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: The proposed identification is a result of photos I took at the Museo de Insectos at the Universidad de Costa Rica which showed the genus and species for each butterfly displayed. We watched these from the caterpillar through adult stages and have additional photos of larvae, pupae and eclosure videos if interested although I believe this is a common species. I do not know the host plant because the caterpillars were on the move when we first noticed them.
