Atala Ovipositing - Eumaeus atala - female

Atala Ovipositing - Eumaeus atala - Female
Okeeheelee Nature Center, Palm Beach County, Florida, USA
April 17, 2004
Ovipositing on a cycad--Coontie, (Zamia pumila, a cycad) the native hostplant.
The staff at the nature center told me this population was actually introduced on purpose after they had planted the Coontie. (That's what I recall, at any rate.)
