American Painted Lady
Vanessa cardui 2-2 1/2 inches
aka "Thistle Butterfly"
It seem there are other versions of the Painted Lady---The book says the 'American Painted Lady' displays large eye spots. This one turned up with the monarchs yesterday...
Thank you for your interest in the Monarch and especially to Ann, Dave, Martin Sandy and Lavina for their wonderful User Awards!
