Mylitta Crescent

Phyciodes mylitta


A butterfly in the Nymphalidae family. Orange with dark markings and a silvery border on the wings. Looks similar in appearance to Fritillary butterflies, but there are some subtle differences. One of them is the fact that the dark spots do not continue on to the forewings of the Mylitta Crescent.


Spotted next to a dirt road with a wet ditch. Plenty of thistle nearby. Can often be found near disturbed ground.


Range: Southern British Columbia southeast through the Rocky Mountain region to Mexico; south to Washington, Oregon, and California.
