Variegated Fritillary

Euptoieta claudia


The Variegated Fritillary is a shapely butterfly that has somewhat scalloped edges and wavy black lines on the upper side of its orange wings. The undersides of its wings are tan and brown, making it resemble a dead leaf. There are no shiny spots like other fritillary butterflies. The caterpillar of this unique butterfly is a sleek orange with white spots and black, branched spines. The chrysalis is a wondrous pearl color,


On the blooms of a Lantana. Near wooded and open field near lake.
