Viceroy (butterfly)

Limenitis archippus

Description:

Its wings feature an orange and black pattern, and over most of its range it is a Müllerian mimic with the monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus). The viceroy's wingspan is between 53 and 81 mm. It can be distinguished from the monarch by its smaller size and the postmedian black line that runs across the veins on the hindwing.

Habitat:

Spotted on a trail near Grassy Lake.
