Plumbeous Silverline

Spindasis schistacea


These butterflies can be recognized by their plumbeous or lead color of the upper side of the wings. The upper side of the fore wing has bands which are reddish orange. The 3rd is bifurcate but it is not as long as Spindasis vulcanus, which stops at vein 3. It meets another faintly outlined band which connects to band 5. The 4th has two distinctly separate, two distinctly separate silver centered spots, each marked clearly with its own black outline.


more encountered in open country in the hills than it is in the lowlands.
