Poor tattered sulfur

efeuerAugust 22, 2013

I know this guy is beat up almost beyond recognition, but can anyone tell me if I am correct in identifying it as an orange sulfur? There were quite a few similar ones around today and unfortunately I did not get close enough to a better looking specimen to photograph it. Thanks for any help.

I don't know how to tell the difference between a clouded sulphur and an orange sulphur even when they're newly emerged - they look identical to me. I can only say your butterfly is likely one of those two. :)

Good picture, and the liatris is pretty!

Well, Sherry, if you can't tell the difference, I don't see how I can expect to!

BTW, I think the flower is Vernonia, New York ironweed. It looks so pretty with the Helenium!
