Hoary Edge Skipper - Butterfly (Achalarus lyciades)
Like a hang glider circling high above the earth, the geometrically triangular wings of the Hoary Edge Skipper help this butterfly float gently through the garden. The fresh green colored caterpillar with a dark stripe and yellow spotting evolves into a fantastic adult butterfly.
The upper and lower sides of the wings are a deep brown, with orange spots decorating the top side of the wings. Nature’s grace takes flight when this creature is present. The unique visual characteristic of the Hoary Edge is the full cotton-white spot on the underside of the wings near the rear section of the butterfly body. This butterfly will catch your eye and add style to your garden.
