Great Gray Copper,  Lycaena xanthoides  <LEP71>


     Except for a black dot on the forewing, a touch of orange on the hindwing crescents, and the thin white fringe, the Great Gray Copper is just what the name implies.  The shade of gray is dark and brownish.  It is most abundant in the Midwest where it is found near wtercourses and milkweed flowers.
