Arizona Butterflies Part 3: Brushfoots

Our journey into North America’s butterfly fauna continues with the examination of the world’s largest butterfly family, collectively known as the brush-foots.  This family includes many familiar insects, such as Mourning Cloak, Painted Lady, and Monarch.  Conversely, some brush-foots are poorly known.  Here, we will examine the diversity, identification, and caterpillars of this large family of butterflies.
