Snout Butterfly (LEP141) Libytheana bachmanii


     The Snout also feeds on hackberries.  It is outstanding by having a long Asnout@ that is formed by its palpi sticking straight out in front of its face.  It also goes through great migrations.  The upper side is dark brown with creamy spots toward the clipped wingtip and large tawny patches on each wing.  Beneath, the hindwing and forewing tip are mottled with mauve and cocoa.  The forewing base is orange.  The drawing shows it feeding on nectar of Florida dogwood.
