Chocolate Pansy Butterfly

In the Christina Reiman Butterfly Wing this month, keep an eye out for a sweet treat, the Chocolate Pansy butterfly (Junonia iphita). This small multi-toned brown butterfly from Asia is seasonally dimorphic, that is, it has different patterns at different times of the year. This particular butterfly has both a dry- and a wet-season form. Visit this month to see the dry-season form. In two months, the wet-season form will be flying around!
