Have you seen this butterfly?

BZS volunteer Camilla Stringer photographed this butterfly, a male Danaid Eggfly or Mimic Butterfly (Hypolimnas misippus) on Oct. 11th at Spittal Pond. The male of this species is dark with large white spots, while the females vary from dark with white spots to an orange and black form which closely mimics the Monarch Butterfly.

If you see this, or any other unusual butterfly, please photograph it if possible. Sightings, including day, time and location, can be reported to the Natural History Museum by calling 293-2727 or emailing conservation@gov.bm
