Atlantis Fritillary,  Speyeria atlantis  <LEP108>


     There is a lot of variation in the Atlantis over geographic areas.  This species ranges across the northern part of the United States.  Eastern individuals will sometimes visit gardens, attracted by black-eyed Susans or other flowers.  It is hard to draw but simple to color, the border and all the spots being black.  The rest of the body is pumpkin-orange.
