Libytheana carinenta – American Snout

Caterpillar foods: Hackberry

American Snouts are much more common farther south in the U.S.  I’ve only seen them here a few times.

7/13/2007   The first time I got a photo was when one appeared during our 2007 Butterfly Count.  We discovered it resting on the antenna of Mike Reese‘s car.


7/13/2007  It didn’t seem bothered even when all the butterfliers gathered around to take pictures.
