Phaon crescent

Phyciodes phaon


This butterfly was flying in a field with lots of wildflowers, where a couple of their hostplant (Fogfruit) was growing. This butterfly is similar to the more common pearl crescent, but has less orange, and a distinct white patch on the forewings on the inside. There are several flights (early spring to late fall) in the northern part of the range and nearly year round in peninsular Florida. In the Cayman islands, this is known as the Crescent spot butterfly.
