|A butterfly that I have already posted many times, but this was really old and deserved the stage. Even if you leave a comment, do not consume the keyboard and revive this site that is otherwise destined to die.|
The genus Anartia is closely allied to Junonia and its Afro-Oriental equivalent Precis and shares their liking for sunny open habitats in disturbed woodland.
There are 5 Anartia species of which jatrophae is the commonest and most widespread. The others are lyrtea from Haiti, chrysopelea from Cuba, fatima from central America and the beautiful black, red and white amathea from mainland South America.
When freshly emerged jatrophae has a beautiful mother-of-pearl luminescence that is difficult to reproduce in a photograph, but after only a short while the colours fade to a dull greyish-white.
Anartia jatrophae is distributed from the southern USA to Bolivia and Argentina. It is also found on most Caribbean islands.
This species is found in disturbed habitats such as gardens, forest clearings, orchards, farmland and grassy riverbanks. It is primarily a lowland insect, but occurs up to an altitude of about 1500m.The eggs are ribbed, yellowish-green in colour, and laid singly on leaves of Blechum, Ruellia and other Acanthaceae; also on Bacopa and Lindernia ( Scrophulariacae ) and Lippia ( Verbenaceae ).This is a sun-loving species. It is active mainly in the mornings when it can be seen basking on the ground or on low foliage. Later in the day when temperatures rise it rests in semi-shaded situations at the forest edge, or sits in open sunlight with the wings held erect. In the late afternoon when the temperature begins to dip, the butterflies commonly bask at the top of coarse grasses and herbage.

D'abord je te fÃ©licite de ta persÃ©vÃ©rance d'Ãªtre restÃ© si fidÃ¨le Ã ce site.
Il est vrai que sans toi et quelques autres il n'existerait certainement plus.
Comme d'habitude une belle image et une excellente notice.
AmitiÃ©s et un grand merci
Les fleurs cadrent le papillon. La prise de vue permet de voir les dÃ©tails du papillon Anartia jatrophae. L'image est claire et prÃ©cise. La lumiÃ¨re fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journÃ©e.
Magnificent image of an otherwise old and woe-begone butterfly, Luciano.
