  • date of photo  Feb 4, 2003
  • location   McAllister Park - City of San Antonio (Bexar County, Texas, US)
  • family Nymphalidae
  • order Lepidoptera
  • class Insecta
  • habitat  Forest clearings and edges, thorn scrub, brushy fields, roadsides.
  • notes   This butterfly was fairly active, considering this was a mostly cloudy day, ambient air temperature approximately 62 degrees. The snout loves to hide by hanging upside down under a twig, where its supreme camouflage makes it nearly invisible. The antennae, combined with the elongated labial palps that give this butterfly its name give the uncanny illusion of a dead leaf complete with stem.
