Crimson Patch

Chlosyne janais


The Crimson Patch is a small butterfly with broad wings, the upperwings being slightly pointed and the lower wings rounded; a shape that most people associate with their idea of what a “typical” butterfly looks like. Belonging to a group of butterflies often called Checkerspots because of the small white spots in their wings, the Crimson Patch can be identified by the prominent, red patch found on each of its lower wings. The wings are held closed when feeding or resting, the red patches appearing orange on the undersides of the wings.
