Limenitis lorquini powelli
Black, white and orange butterfly with a wingspan of about 2.5 inches.
Ah, okay. It's a great list - we're planning on a central america trip at the end of the year.... so many butterflies!
Interesting especially since these butterflies were very social and flirted in groups of three,
I mentioned exact specie of Lorquin's Admiral butterfly with another link.
Yes...I just remember that link find during searching one butterfly for Greeneda. Sisters family link mentioned with your all three names.... involved in discussion like sisters...... :)
Ashish, Thank you for pointing me in the direction of Butterflies of America. What a great resource!
Karen that link was not suggestion for this type. For this type showed another link.
Also, looking at the pictures of the sister family, I see that their red tips are surrounded by brown and the lorquin's goes to the edge of the wing
Given that the source I used did not show California Sister as a local species, I"m thinking Lorquin's is the best ID. We're supposed to have both butterflies where I live and I've never seen the Sister, just the admiral
