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: butterfly alighted on trunk of magnolia tree in front yard; I attempted to capture it with my fingers, but it flew off. The flight was very quick and erratic.

Coordinator notes: Butterfly alighted on trunk of magnolia tree in front yard and I got a very close look at it with wings folded; I attempted to capture it with my fingers, but it flew off and I briefly saw the upperside. The flight was very quick and erratic. This information was recorded in my field notes just after the sighting. This was the only time I saw this species in the San Antonio area.
