(Libytheana carinenta bachmanii)
This distinctive butterfly may be seen from June through September. It is most common in and near dry woods but is also found in open areas such as the BFEC prairie. It is most often seen on wet soil near stream banks. When perched the long palpi (snout like structure) and squared off forewing are distinctive. The coloration of the folded wings make this species easy to overlook as it can be mistaken for a dry leaf. When the wings are spread they have a bright orange and brown pattern.
