Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Viceroy
Class:Insecta Order:Lepidoptera Family:Nymphalidae Genus:Limenitis


I photographed this Viceroy in a open field. Looks like a Monarch, yes? How do you tell the difference between the two? The Viceroy is smaller and has a black horizontal stripe that crosses the bottom of its back wings.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
