Common Sootywing (Pholisora catullus)

Posted on Aug 25, 2016

The little Common Sootywing (Pholisora catullus) butterfly can easily go unseen in the dirt, buried in the grass, or sitting on some mulch like this. The typical common name fits, certainly, but the other – Roadside Rambler – is very entertaining, though it seems to be used for Amblyscirtes celia as well. Regardless, here’s some love for a less extravagant lepidoptera friend.
