Chlosyne lacinia lacinia
Another beauty in the garden.
Thank you so much, stephanielrickman.
Such a beautiful butterfly, Gilma! Thank you for sharing:)
Thank you so much for the ID, StirredMocha and SarotaBoy.I tried to see if it was : male or female and just could not figure it out... : (
Thank you so much, SarotaBoy.
I agree with StirredMocha. Similar Chlosyne janais has two cell spots on each forewing. Chlosyne l. lacinia has one or zero according to the book I have (A Swift Guide to the Butterflies of Mexico and Central America).
Thank you so much, StirredMocha, I will look into it.
One of the patches (Chlosyne sp.). Not sure which one but I think perhaps bordered (C. lacinia), which is the most variable species.
