Example text

Description: Well known for its uncanny resemblance to the Monarch and Queen, the Viceroy presumably mimics these species because they are distasteful and avoided by predators. The upperside wings are deep orange overall with wide, black venation and margins. White spots dot the dark, marginal bands, and there is an oblique line of black across the middle of the hindwing, which is absent in the Monarch and Queen. The underside is patterned similarly but is duller orange, especially on the hindwings.

The underside forewing is patterned as above, but the hindwing is mottled in earth tones with a row of submarginal eyespots. The body is speckled light and dark brown above, is whitish below, and has thin, club-tipped antennae ending in pale dots. The caterpillar is blackish with pale yellow stripes, and is covered in fine hairs and bristles. 5” Habitat: Open fields, meadows, coastal shores Range: Throughout the contiguous United States, most commonly in southern latitudes Food: The caterpillar eats the leaves, buds, and fruit of plaintains, gerardias, and snapdragons.

The caterpillar is plump; patterned in brown, purplish and black; and has long, thin hairs. 5” Habitat: Sunny, open fields as well as meadows and gardens. During migration, can be found in almost any environment. Range: Throughout the contiguous United States to north-central Mexico Food: The caterpillar eats leaves and flowers of milkweed.
