Gulf Fritillary

Agraulis vanillae


Wingspan up to 2.5". The host plant is passion vines. Markings are as shown in attached photos.


This species was spotted in the Mississippi Bayou area, on the Pearl River. Various references indicate they as well have spread to the Southwest, up from the Caribbean and Mexico, but I have spotted none in Arizona or Nevada.
