CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: American Lady Butterfly (Vanessa virginensis)
They’re backkkkkkkk. Sometimes the common name is given as American (Painted) Lady; True “painted lady” butterfly (V. cardui) has different laval hosts and eyespot count is one key to identification. See composite photos for identification: http://bugguide.net/node/view/236368
Larval host: cudweed aka Everylasting. In my yard: Delicate Everlasting (Gamochaeta antillana) a Florida native cudweed. (syn. Gnaphalium spp.); Possibly pearly everlasting (Anaphalis margaritacea), plantain-leaved pussy toes (Antennaria plantaginifolia), wormwood (Artemisia), ironweed (Vernonia), and burdock (Arctium).
Shown on Florida Native Plant: Bidens alba
