Empress Leilia - Asterocampa leilia
Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Pima County, Arizona, USA
August 10, 2018
Size: 1 1/2 inch + or -
I was walking one of the trails in the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum leading from one exhibit to another exhibit when I observed a butterfly I was not familiar with. In checking Jeffrey Glassberg's Butterflies through Binoculars of the West I determined that this is an Empress Leilia.

Empress Leilia, as you thought.
