West Coast Lady,  Vanessa carye  <LEP144>


     Resembling the Painted Lady, this is a Pacific Slope species.  The field marks with which to distinguish it are: The bar in a black area at the end of the cell on the upper forewing is orange, the eyespots on the upper hindwing are large and blue, and the brown and white mottling below has a yellowish cast.  Otherwise the color above is orange-peel orange, with black markings and white spots.  The orange shows on the base of the forewing beneath.  The drawing shows it visiting cheeseweed.
